ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Christmas songs like you've never heard before ~ a new holiday classic! Angels Of Venice's "Sanctus" (meaning "sacred") combines global influences such as world/middle eastern, gothic, medieval, renaissance, baroque, classical and traditional sounds to create a CD of holiday music that is refreshing and innovative ~ quite the opposite of a "Jingle Bells"-type CD. "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" is world fusion in style, soothing and silky featuring violinist Eric Gorfain, who toured with Robert Plant & Jimmy Page, on serptentine violin. "Carol Of The Bells" is in the style of Dead Can Dance while "Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy" sounds like the soundtrack to "A Nightmare Before Christmas." Fourteen months in the making, this CD's instrumentation consists of exotic instruments such as harp, flute, cello, violin and percussion, harpsichord, tanpura (like a sitar), oboe, bassoon, bass, church bells, temple bells, gongs, chimes, Gregorian chant-type vocals and stunning female vocals on "Carol Of The Bells." Official release date: October 31, 2003. -Produced by Carol Tatum

UPDATE:
EXOTIC NEW CD: "ANCIENT DELIRIUM"
A new CD entitled "ANCIENT DELERIUM" was released September 23, 2009. Vocalist CHARLES EDWARD from the industrial/goth/rock band SERAPHIM SHOCK adds his velvety rich voice to all tracks and Carol's long-time engineer, FLORIAN AMMON, is again producing. Of interest is the fact that Florian just mixed several songs on the upcoming 2009 U2 album "No Line On The Horizon" and has just finished mixing the new RAMMSTEIN CD. There is a cover of LED ZEPPELIN's "Friends." PLEASE VISIT WWW.CAROLTATUM.COM or here at CD Baby to listen to samples of "ANCIENT DELIRIUM."

Please e mail Carol with any questions about the upcoming release or to be put on the e mailing list. Peace, please. ~Carol Tatum, ANGELSVEN@aol.com, www.angelsofvenice.com

Andrea

Unbelievable music.
The music transports you back to a time long forgotten. This cd is mesmorizing as well as beautiful to listen to. I will listen to Sanctus even after the holidays! Great for meditation!

Melissa

Great album - just like the other Angels of Venice CDs
Great and DIFFERENT holiday music. You won't hear this one at the mall. Traditional melodies with exotic instrumentation.

Laura

Magical
Sanctus musically illuminates the divine heart and soul of Christmas. It is a classical work of art that will endure through the moons of many holiday eves to come.

Budd

if you want unique holiday music, buy this
Immenently listenable, standard Christmas tunes are rendered new by exciting, Middle-Eastern sounding arrangements. The musicianship is peerless, and they give the songs the serious treatment they deserve.

Why mess around with the latest popstar who is turning out drivel at the holiday season? Go with the Angels!
