Notes & Reviews:
For the peaceful hours of the season, this quiet disc from soprano Kathleen Battle and guitarist Christopher Parkening will be a welcome solace. Battle's light soprano is in perfect balance with Parkening's instrument in these lesser know carols from around the world.Notes & Reviews:
Personnel: Kathleen Battle (soprano); Christopher Parkening (guitar, classical guitar).
Recording information: Abyssinian Baptist Church, New York, NY (05/16/1996-05/31/1996); The Abyssinian Baptist Church, New York, NY (05/16/1996-05/31/1996).
Kathleen Battle's Angels' Glory is a terrific holiday album that appropriately concentrates on religious-themed traditional carols. It's a somber yet joyous affair which won't be suited to light-hearted Christmas parties, yet makes for fine inspirational Christmas listening. ~ Rodney Batdorf
