about

The title refers to the 15th century painter Fra Angelico ("brother angel" in Italian).
I had been working on this song for a while, but only after Thomas Clement (husband of my friend and art colleague Wonsook Kim) gave me his bouzouki did this song come together.

The accompanying image is of the cover painting in an earlier work-in-progress state. This painting and all the art on the physical CD are by Amy Huddleston.

lyrics

I am chasing brother angel
Round the table in the bright meadow
With his palette of graceful colors
Catching them is like catching smoke

Stick figure lovers in a sidewalk picture
Pastel bright and child’s touch bold
We will swim this sky blue river
With hallowed fish: black and gold

Someone gave me this sweet, sweet orange
When I taste it I’m ten years old
With my father on the road home from Kimjeh
Oh the love that makes this sweet world roll
