We’ve been playing out The Angel Flight by Bruno Pignatiello on a number of our shows recently – and Bruno spoke to us about the song and its meaning:
The Angel Flight is a very special song to me. I wrote this track as my mother died in September of 2014. In February of the same year I had already lost my father as well.
Storms and sadness came into my life, but out of the blue I felt I had to get out of that sadness so I told myself: “Come on Bruno, stop falling apart! You’re a Christian artist, instead of pyting you just write an ode to dad and mom with a joyful vision of death!”
Some months later, when the American artist and singer Marisa Frantz collaborated with me in a previous version of the song – playing a great violin and an ethereal singing along the track, at hearing it she commented “what a catchy and fun song!” and I said to myself: “Jesus, that made my day!”
The song talks about the love between my parents and their love for us children. The Angel Flight means very much to me because it’s the flight of my parents to Heaven.
THE ANGEL FLIGHT (ORCHESTRATED) is a new version of the song played with epic strings and it’s sung by me and some amazing artists of the international scene: the American tenor Jonathan Matthews and the English soprano Caroline Joy Clarke.
The magical blend of the three voices as well the mastering of the track were done by the notable English sound engineer Chris Brown who has worked with many amazing stars in the music business such as Muse, Radiohead, Rod Stewart, Natalie Imbruglia and the Beatles anthologies with Sir George Martin just to name a few.
About THE ANGEL FLIGHT, orchestra conductors and professionals wrote that it would fit very well to the soundtrack of an epic movie and the inclusion of a song of mine in a film would be a dream coming true to me.
