All Angels

All Angels are a British classical crossover group formed in 2006, consisting of Daisy Chute, Rachel Fabri, Melanie Nakhla and Charlotte Ritchie (who is also a well-known actress starring in shows such as Fresh Meat).  The group’s style is classical crossover music and close harmony arrangement, with a repertoire spanning classical, choral, opera and pop including Franz Schubert’s Ellens dritter Gesang, Agnus Dei (the choral arrangement of Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings) and the Sancta Maria intermezzo from Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana, along with the Flower Duet from Léo Delibes’ Lakmé and the Barcarolle from Jacques Offenbach’s The Tales of Hoffmann, plus pop songs such as Robbie Williams’ Angels, Fleetwood Mac’s Songbird, Coldplay’s The Scientist, True Colours, Goodnight my Angel (Billy Joel) Muses’ Starlight and Prince’s Nothing Compares 2 U. They have also performed the National Anthem at Twickenham and at the England vs. USA football match in Wembley Stadium in the summer of 2008.

They recorded their first three albums with Universal and have sold over 1 million albums to date. Their self-titled debut album, All Angels, was released in 2006, and their second album, Into Paradise, was released on 26 November 2007. A third album, Fly Away, was released in January 2010. Songs on this album include Norah Jones’s Come Away With Me, Send in the Clowns, Bob Dylan’s Blowin’ in the Wind, Eric Whitacre’s Sleep, and a duet with The Harlem Gospel Choir on I’ll Fly Away.

They undertook a UK tour supporting Katherine Jenkins in Summer 2009 and completed an arena tour later that year with Young Voices. They were invited to perform in Los Angeles as part of the Inspiration Awards raising money for a Breast Cancer charity which they have been affiliated with for the last four years.
