Re: Your least favorite Libera song is?

The brass is marvelous for the fanfare and for the bold statements made at various points, but brass can't effectively render the tender emotion of the passage we now call "Going Home". Well, I know what people feel like talking to me about opera now! I guess nothing I say will make you in to a lov...

Re: Your least favorite Libera song is?

Hmmmm........ How about "Billy Elliot" performed by a mariachi band? Never thought of it but it has recently been playing in Mexico, maybe you can track down a clip for us to listen to. It might be a revelation. There are a few operas I can think of that it would improve.... back on Dvorak though a...

Re: Libera to tour USA

There are a lot of photos, and video clips, where they are reading. The boys seem to enjoy reading, which is obviously a good thing - one will benefit a lot from reading (not just relaxation). Music & reading - I can't think of anything better (besides family & friends, of course) that can have pos...

But a brass band is a poor instrument to play a piece such as Dvorak's New World Symphony.
:lol: If you say so!

Re: Your least favorite Libera song is?

Eh, can't say that would be my favorite version. The tempo is too rushed and it sounds like it was played by a marching band - too much brass and not enough strings and woodwinds. This summer I had the great good luck to hear it performed by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra at one of their Conce...

Re: Your least favorite Libera song is?

Here's another version (and use) of the melody. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgjLJSuGPt8 Hovis! I remember that add because they ran it throughout the 70's - Their Millenium and Farmer's son adds are great too. Try this version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Mq59ykPnAE Sorry to take the thread...

I would say Going Home was his best solo
You may say that but I wouldnt agree😁 I think he is eclipsed by Tom & Josh on that one. The Lamb & Ben's tone are just perfect for each other.

Re: Your least favorite Libera song is?

This is a hard topic for me to contribute to, because there aren't a whole lot of Libera songs I don't like. :) However, there are some I don't really care for: - Luminosa and Attendite from Luminosa - Corpus Christi Carol from the Christmas Album - it's kind of slow and it's not really unique comp...

Re: Your least favorite Libera song is?

And I also would like to add to the not-to-my-liking list 'We Are The Lost' - it just doesn't sound interesting to me. :| Oh, I have to disagree! This is such a beautiful song. And the lyrics gives me goosebumps. Ok, we are nearer to the topic over here. But I think the music reflects the thoughtfu...

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

Great news, that means more videos to see! Maybe it's still just a broadcast specialized for the UK only, but I'm sure we'll get it somehow... :roll: I wonder how many songs will they sing? And will there be collaborations? There will be two UK tv shows produced from the event, one to be aired just...

Re: Your least favorite Libera song is?

I think my least favorite Libera song is 'Love and Mercy'. I cannot un-hear the live version at the Kennedy Center honors. No matter how good the song sounds on a CD, that live eversion just ruins it for me. I'm afraid I have to agree with that. They were having a rough tour that time around. I thi...
