Aspera Hiems Symfonia '95/Constellation '94/My Angel '91 is a compilation album by the Norwegian black metal band Arcturus. The album contains their first full-length album Aspera Hiems Symfonia (remastered) and two earlier releases, Constellation and My Angel. The songs "The Deep Is the Skies" and "Cosmojam" on the beginning of Disc 2 are new tracks previously unreleased. All songs are heavily remastered for a stronger, clearer sound. Although the CD booklet claims that no material was re-recorded, there are sections that were obviously either re-recorded or spliced in from other takes of the material, such as clean vocal sections in "Wintry Grey", "Naar kulda tar" and "Raudt og svart", and the synthesizer solo in the beginning of "The Bodkin and The Quietus", which is replaced by a similar but slightly more complex guitar solo.
