The composer writes of this piece: Angel Song II is inspired by the idea of angels singing on Christmas night. The music weaves a gentle melody over the aleatoric textures of the accompanying voices. The text is designed to create the echo of the word “Hosanna,” but with no consonants, so the music feels as if it comes from “on high.&rdquo.

    Todd's 'Angel Song II' (I am yet to find the first one) is a stunningly contemporary choral work or great interest and beauty. The text used is simply the vowels of the word 'Hosanna' and is, according to Todd, representative of angels singing from far reaches of the cosmos...

    . The work consists of simply melodic ideas in each part that are in turn repeated at any speed or time by each singer until another motif is introduced. This creates a wonderful interplaying backdrop of melodic lines over which either basses or sopranos sing in unison a simple, haunting melody. A fabulous work or contemporary choral music.
