Angel Band

From composers Tim Sharp and Timothy Michael Powell, ANGEL BAND uses songs and carols from the Appalachian shape-note tradition. This collection stands as a full Christmas cantata in a truly American style.

“Thanks to Timothy Michael Powell and Tim Sharp, Christmas can be a reality for choirs and instrumentalists this holiday season. While there are elements of bluegrass, they have woven more classical and folk sounds to make “Angel Band” a pleasure for every palate.”

Brandon Boyd, Ph.D.
Choral Editor, Gentry Publications

You wanna be where you can see our troubles are all the same. You wanna be where everybody knows Your name. Straightnin’ the curves. Flatnin’ the hills Someday the mountain might get ‘em but the law never will? Come and dance on our floor. Take a step that is new. 

“Angel Band tells the Christmas story through 10 traditional songs and original compositions. We use Appalachian sounds and early hymn tunes to give it a distinctive American flavor.”

—Tim Sharp, Composer

Believe it or not I’m walking on air. I never thought I could feel so free. No phone no lights no motor car not a single luxury. Like Robinson Crusoe it’s primitive as can be.
