Anonymous 4 is recognized and acclaimed for its explorations and superlative performances of many forms of early music. The group's usual choices for source material are centuries-old codices, ancient texts, or long forgotten manuscripts. AMERICAN ANGELS instead finds the foursome delving into collections such as 'The Southern Harmony' and 'The Sacred Harp' and investigating relatively obscure forms of a cappella choral singing such as shape-note, in an effort to present a condensed history of sacred music in the United States. They describe this album as the diary of their journey to the roots of Anglo-American spiritual vocal music.
The selections span the years from the American Revolution to the present and represent a variety of musical styles and traditions. There are 18th-century psalm settings and fugal tunes from New England, 19th-century folk hymns and camp revival songs from the deep South, as well as gospel songs from Northeastern cities that were adopted in the late 19th century by rural Southerners. All are rendered with unerring musicianship and the group's always-scrupulous attention to detail and context. AMERICAN ANGELS is a departure for Anonymous 4, but nonetheless this remarkable ensemble has produced an album that ranks among the finest of its formidable discography.
