Re: Libera to tour USA

A wonderful photo. The boys seem to have so much fun, the weather is great, behind them you can see all the fun to be had and the towels, shorts and shoes add splashes of colour to their trademark white outfits. What a lovely way to spend a summer holiday. Hopefully this sunny smiling atmosphere is ...

Re: Aksel Rykkvin - Boy Soprano who needs your help.

Wonderful news - Aksel has been working on a new CD! :D https://www.facebook.com/akselmusic/videos/1552238728180741/ I am really glad because his voice is richer now than when his first CD was recorded. You can follow his development as a performer quite closely because he regularly shares recording...

Re: Ely Cathedral 29th April 2017

Thanks FDL, I knew there would be someone who remembers these things :)
I was hoping for a picture of Dreaming of Home - hearing that song live was such a special experience.

Merlin does a great solo job in ‘Venite Adoremus’ with his clear, pure and strong voice.
I agree. He has a very strong voice, like a ray of light piercing the darkness.

Looking forward to your review also, filiarheni :) and I'm glad you finally received the album!

Re: New album is called Hope

Well, here's another review ;) I received my copy yesterday and must say I am thrilled beyond compare. This album goes straight to the nr. 1 spot of my favourite Libera albums. There isn't a single track on here that disappoints or is weaker than the others. In fact, there is a consistency throughou...

Re: New Video

Wow. Salve Regina uses the theme of my nr. 1 favourite Impromptu by Schubert! The first time I heard it was during a Schubert recital in Hampstead in 2014. It felt so peaceful and special. Ever since that first time it has become a piece of music that I turn to when I need to calm down or find some ...

Re: Ely Cathedral 29th April 2017

There probably was no lower part in that performance. I don't remember exactly but if there had been I would have noticed it. There was one other song (can't remember exactly which one but might have been Amazing Grace) where the three older boys stood in the back and made me realise how much the lo...

Re: Ely Cathedral 29th April 2017

Here are my impressions of this wonderful concert experience. First of all the morning and the afternoon. Wandering around the cathedral while the lights and instruments were being set up. Looking in awe at all the stained glass windows, paintings and carvings. Taking pictures of angels singing – an...

Re: New album is called Hope

Merlin already had a solo on "I Vow to Thee My Country" on the Jupiter album and was good. :) I would say that unless an international release is announced within the next several weeks your chances of seeing the album for sale at Ely are very small. Jupiter is one of those releases I read about bu...

Re: New album is called Hope

Really excited for this :D It looks like a wonderful mix of songs, in the different styles of songs that Libera chooses . Also excited to hear some new soloists - curious for Merlin in particular. It's all very promising and the first proper full-length studio album since Peace. I keep my fingers cr...

Re: Help Needed

Hi Paul, Sorry, I don't think I can help. I can give my opinion on anything other people put forward, but to think of a logo myself..? However, I do want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your work on the Forum, which often goes unnoticed, until it reveals itself in something like this f...
