Programme Note:
The creation of Angel Seasons began in 1983 when I attended a poetry reading by Toronto poet Ian Young. I was intrigued by the use of angel imagery in his work. The dedication of his Summer Angels and Autumn Angels led me to Tom Marshall's Winter Angels and Spring Angels,and a combination that begged to be made into a song cycle. These angels are at once sensual yet ethereal, detached yet passionate, omnipresent yet intangible, benevolent yet capable of turning the mind to madness.
