On April 23rd All Angels will release a new version of the album. Having recently been in the studio, the new edition will feature three brand new recordings. The new tracks are 'Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace', 'Pie Jesu', plus a rousing rendition of 'Sancte Deus (Nimrod)' by Elgar. You can hear clips of these new tracks exclusively through the media player on this site.
1. Songbird 2. The Flower Duet [From Lakme] 3. Salve Regina [Based On Pachelbel's Canon] 4. Steal Away 5. The Windmills Of Your Mind 6. Barcarolle [From The Tales Of Hoffman] 7. Hosanna 8. Ave Verum Corpus [Theme From Brideshead Revisited] 9. Angels 10. Ave Maria 11. Pokarekare Ana 12. Agnus Dei 13. Sancte Deus (Nimrod) 14. Make Me A Channel of Your Peace 15. Pie Jesu
So I guess the only song that we lose is Silent Night. Can't wait to hear the new songs!
Hi Folks I agree entirely about excluding Christmas songs from the main album, I get the odd raised eyebrow when a christmas song comes on in the middle of March or worse still the middle of June. A bonus disc with Christmas songs would be an easy way around this.
3 May, 2007 New Digital Album Out Now & Brits News
The new version of 'All Angels' is available to buy digitally now. Featuring three new tracks and a new cover it is available from all good digital retailers. This new version of the album will not be released on a physical format.
All Angels will be performing at The Classical Brit Awards tonight where they are nominated for Album of the Year. The show is set to feature the very best the classical world has to offer and is sure to pick up some press on Friday so look out for any pieces on All Angels
Richard, I agree with your interpretation of this. The extra tracks will only be available on download and not on a CD, therefore the physical CD Special Edition has been cancelled.
It will be interesting to see if the supermarkets and general stores re-stock with the original version of All Angels, which is still posssible.
In hindsight, my guess is now that release of the CD Special Edition may have been conditional on All Angels winning "Album of The Year" at the Classical Brits, and that the release date was initially postponed to 14 May to allow time for Universal to get the album into shops IF they won. Sadly, they did not and yesterday's News item on the official site may have given us an advance clue that they did not win!
Well spotted Richard!
I have updated the information on the AAI front page and the Scrolling News header in the forum.

Nope, that is not the reason, Dave. Daisy told me at the CBAs that they would not be available to do any promotion for the re-release because they will all be heavily involved with exams. It was therefore considered more prudent to limit the re-release to download only thereby greatly reducing costs.
