In Search of Angels is the soundtrack to the television special of the same name. It features 16 tracks by 11 different artists. Tim Story composed and performed six of the pieces, five of which are unique to this CD. The other artists represent an eclectic array of styles, from k.d. lang to the American Boychoir. It is a Windham Hill offering, so quality is assumed from the get-go. The surprises are the deep, spiritual chorales. The St. Olaf Choir performs a version of "Star in the East" with two sopranos, a tenor, and a hammered dulcimer. It is the highlight of a remarkable collection. All in all, this hour of listening bliss is an essential collection.
