Notes & Reviews:

From the opening unison strings of 'Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence' to the last note of 'Silent Night,' this CD courses with the extraordinary arrangements of Ensemble Galilei. Each track a revelation, Ensemble Galilei has made Surrounded By Angels so rich and so deep that it transcends the genres of Irish or Scottish or Early Music. So much more than the sum of its parts, this is the recording that will stand year after year as the most beloved recording for the Christmas season.
