Sergei Rachmaninoff's "Six Choral Songs for Treble Voices," opus 15, combine beautiful lyrical melodies with the sort of brilliant piano accompaniment that would be expected from this composer. The entire set makes a wonderful program element, but individual numbers, of which No. 6, "The Angel," is the most popular, can also be excerpted.
