The fish you mention would most likely get along ok together in the short term. However, don't be overly comfortable with the Blue Throat Trigger. Yes, it is a "passive" species by Trigger standards, but it could easily make short work of these species as it grows and becomes more territorial in the confines of an aquarium.
You also are tackling a very difficult group of fish. Anthias, tilefish, the Lamarck's angel, and the BiColor Angel all are on the more difficult side, compared to most fish you regularly see at the LFS. In fact, I would personally consider keeping a Tilefish to be extremely difficult, and the Lamarck's angel to be an impressive accomplishment long term. You have your work cut out for you on this setup.
