Of Angels (1996)

This program is inspired by a folk/bluegrass/country set of "angel" music that I heard the other day. It's also a revisitation of a 1995 Mixed Up Class program sequence of the same name. (The curious can see the 1995 playlists).

This week's programming borrowed from the BBC Proms series is an aria from G. F. Handel's Semele (Prom 21), "Where'er you walk".
