Information from owned CD.
As stated by Joel Cohen in the booklet with the CD: "This recording is meant to provide a rapid, guided tour of the angel realms, in the form of musical fantasy. Except for The Angel of Death, whose music is entirely original, all other musical themes and texts are drawn from early sources ... Ted Machobver's brilliant and creative sound is meant to underline both the contemporaneity and the timelessness of these angelic visions."
