Re: Concert at Ely Cathedral in May 2018

Well, I've just been having a look at the cost or the train and B&B... Unless I find a job soon I won't be able to attend this venue... It's to expensive for just one concert. :( I am sorry to hear that and I hope that things work out for you. Travel is expensive; even with a full-time job affordin...

Re: CD "Luminosa"

Hey filiarheni, It is so nice to read this review in which you take an album that is old and no longer has the effect it once did on me and write a review with your fresh perspective. Although the album has some great songs on it (including several of my all-time favorites), what I never liked about...

Re: Concert at Ely Cathedral in May 2018

What in the world does "soon" mean? :shock: I hope that a more definitive ticket sale date and time is given soon :lol: . Thank you for keeping us up to date, filiarheni!

Re: 2018 Tour Speculations

So perhaps this may affect something in our speculating. Once in a while Libera does a tour in February, well this year we know that won't be happening. I just got an automated email from Libera, as did many of you I'm sure if you're on their mailing list, and it contained holiday greetings as well ...

Re: Libera at Songs of Praise 'Big Sing' 2017

Yet another thank you to Jimmy for your help in allowing all of us to see this video!

The descants are extra audible at around 3:12; very impressive job by what appears to be Leo and Taichi. Shame that they revised the song to exclude Merlin's solo at the end - probably to conserve on-air time.

Re: London Concert - 1 December 2017

Great review filiarheni! Thank you so much for writing it even if it did take you far (away) too long to deliver it to us :lol: :wink:. Your impressions are also appreciated and I can agree with you about Rocco's solos and "Angele Dei" which I heard in Saint Louis and which ended up, unexpectedly, a...

Re: Libera at Songs of Praise 'Big Sing' 2017

I find it frustrating that people complain that the BBC iPlayer is for UK viewers only - do you expect to get free access to Netflix online? Somebody has to pay for the programming and in the case of the BBC it is the UK tv licence payers so why should other people get it free (and yes I know they ...

Re: 2018 Tour Speculations

I like your analysis andmar. You are correct that any tour plans must take those factors into account. My only point of content would be concerning the attractiveness of the location to the choristers. Because they come from a variety of backgrounds we cannot readily say what sort travel experience ...

Re: Libera at Songs of Praise 'Big Sing' 2017

That's very frustrating. I have used free VPNs for these sorts of things before but it is usually not worth the hassle (and low, laggy speeds!) just to hear one song. :x :( The Great British Firewall wins again.

2018 Tour Speculations

With the New Year almost upon us I wanted to speculate as to where we all think Libera will be touring in 2018! It has been awfully quiet around here so we need to talk about this. ;) In order to narrow down options for 2018 we need to look at past trends. I will not bother reproducing a longer time...

Are you planning on seeing them in Ely in May or will you be holding off until the next December concert? Either way please be sure to participate here as news and information and discussion about ...

Re: Christmas Message 2017

This was definitely a unique message and of course hearing them sing is always enjoyable. Hearing the individual voices is great too because you really get a feel for how the parts make up the entirety of the whole in the choir. I really liked this a lot and hope they do it again in future. :D

Re: "Christmas Music with Libera"

I do not know exactly how Spotify's algorithms works but it seems to me that this "album" is nothing more than a collection of Christmas songs (plus Wonderful World) compiled by Spotify based perhaps on the metadata of the song files themselves? This is not a new album. It is their two Christmas alb...

Re: London Concert - 1 December 2017

Thanks for the review of your very first Libera concert, Victor. :D I am so glad that you got to hear some of your personal favorites that evening. Hopefully you will get to see them again soon.

I share your sentiment about "Angele Dei" by the way!
