Apt way to part from an angel

IN The Dream of Gerontius, where the death of Gerontius and the soul's ascent to heaven is related, Edward Elgar sets the words of Cardinal Newman.

When Gerontius meets the angel who has accompanied him thither, he addresses her: "I wish to hold with thee conscious communion." So, 'conscious uncoupling' seems an appropriate way to part from an angel ('Actress Paltrow and Martin separate', Online, March 25).
