Angel Records, in conjunction with Utne Online, is giving away a total
of 20 recent-release CDs from Academy Award winning artist Anne Dudley
and the Grammy-nominated folk duo Jay Ungar and Molly Mason.

Dudley, most known for her work with the pop group, The Art of Noise,
won the Academy's notice for the soundtrack she scored for "The Full
Monty." Her newest CD, "Ancient and Modern" celebrates classical

Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, best known for their work on the
soundtracks of Ken Burns' documentaries "The Civil War," "Baseball,"
