"Giubileo" is the debut CD from soprano singer Angela Knight, from the Washington DC area in the USA.
Created and produced between August 2006 and October 2007 with producer/arranger Dan Lamaestra, this album is the result of years of deep reflection and experience in music and in life. Many of these original melodies feature lyrics taken direct from passages in the Bible, and are meant as a "heart-felt expression of God's truth and love", according to Angela.
From lush and soaring vocal lines to deep and rhythmic instrumental backing tracks especially arranged for these songs, "Giubileo" is a journey of sound you will want to experience again and again.
