In the Sight of the Angels Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs is the first collection of spiritual music in over eight years from priest, composer and liturgist Michael Joncas. The songs on the CD come out of the time in which Joncas suffered from Guillain-Barre syndrome and feature themes of divine providence, rescue and sustenance. The choral singing adds lushness which contrasts beautifully with the instrumentation of brass, harp, flute, organ and other instruments. The 11 songs on the CD come from three settings including psalm settings as seen in the music including Drink in the Richness of God and Till the End of My Days, New Testament Lukan infancy canticles including canticles of Zechariah, Mary and Simeon and, most importantly, Holy Spirit settings as seen on All Who Are Led by the Spirit and Veni, Sancte Spiritus.

The music on In the Sight of the Angels is lush, tender and rich in love and mercy and, coming out of Joncas's recent experience of illness, depicts a merciful God who gives hope in times of suffering.
