‘We should pray to the angels, for they are given to us as guardians.’ St Ambrose

Angels are considered divine intermediaries between heaven and earth; messengers sent to guide and guard. Over the centuries they have inspired flights of brilliance from musicians, poets and writers, enshrining their essence and wisdom in art. St Ambrose is traditionally credited with promoting antiphonal voices in sacred music – calls and responses uniquely explored in Guardian Angel, a programme of voices and solo violin uniting the ‘queen of the Baroque violin’ (Sunday Times), Rachel Podger, and the ‘impeccable’ (Gramophone) VOCES8.

Rachel Podger’s playing is intoxicated and intoxicatingBBC Music Magazine
