After 18 years as a quartet, the early music vocal ensemble Anonymous 4 is retiring. Marsha Genensky, Susan Hellauer, Jacqueline Horner and Johanna Marie Rose are currently performing their last concerts and making their last recordings as a group.

Fortunately, one stop the farewell tour was NPR's Studio 4A, where they spent an hour with Performance Today host Fred Child singing music from their newest CD, American Angels: Hope, Redemption & Glory and talking about their years together and what's next for each of them. The playlist of the performance is below.

- "The Morning Trumpet"

- "Amazing Grace" (quiet version)

- "Amazing Grace" (lively version)

- "Sweet Hour of Prayer"

- "Wondrous Love"

- "Shall We Gather at the River"

- "Abbeville"

- "Sweet By and By"

- "Angel Band"
