In the Book Notes series, authors create and discuss a music playlist that relates in some way to their recently published book.
A Flight of Angels is a graphic novel that explores the mythology of angels through five stories penned by different authors and beautifully illustrated throughout by Rebecca Guay.
Scripps Howard News Service wrote of the book:
"Occasionally someone executes a standard storytelling device with such dazzling skill that it reminds you why that device became standard in the first place. Rebecca Guay is that someone, with 'A Flight of Angels.'"
In a pinch if I had to pick ONE of these songs to sum it all up it would be Imogen Heap's "Can't Take It in". I was listening to most of these while working - they are all favorites.
Listening to A Flight of Angels:
"Lucy Meets Mr Tumnus" from The Chronicles of Narnia soundtrack by Harry Gregson-Williams
"Inama Nushif" montage form Dune by Brian Tyler
"The Kiss" from the Last of the Mohicans soundtrack by Trevor Jones
Frame story and Fall of the Shining Host
