Thanks it's a better view, if only there was sound. Rain appears to be holding off. Welcome to the forum by the way, and all newcomers.

Ooops spoke too soon, the umbrella's are back up!

I've ticked off Joyful, Joyful, Sanctus & first speech and now they're kneeling down for Prayer. Not sure I'll be able to keep up but so far so good. A silent concert for me via webcam but strangely addictive!

You are right! This is a special experience. Now they sing Sempiterna, then Angel. :)

For those who watched the silent webcam it will be old news that Isaac was back for the "Prayer" and "Angel" - but as part of a trio or quartet who assisted with the highest notes. Gregor once again performed "Wonderful World" and confirmed his vocal skills. "Voca Me was omitted" - not sure why, as Gabriel was still in top form. There was no encore despite the pleas of the substantial audience chanting "Libera, Libera" for several minutes after the boys had left the stage. Probably because of the very wet weather. Otherwise a similar program to last night - but with full orchestra and dramatic lighting and smoke effects. Sometimes they had to compete with ambulance sirens. Like the true professional that he is, Merlin did not skip a beat when a particularly loud one interrupted his solo. I think it was Ben who became the recipient of some roses thrown on to the stage.The boys remained dry, but Robert conducted from in front of the stage underneath an umbrella which did not really give much protection. There were a number of technical issues and the acoustics were far from perfect but this, along with the rain, did not dampen the enthusiasm of the boys nor of the large and vocal crowd who braved the elements to be rewarded by this spectacular show.

I was to todays concert! That was so amazing! My first concert of Libera!

How I missed information about yesterdays concert? Couldn't find any information about where and at what time they were supossed to performe, so I thought that they will not perform. But now I see, that they performed...

But about today! When they started to sing the first song, that was so clear, pure and peacefull! And this feeling was similar almost in all concert!

The link itself doesn't seem to work, but the video embedded in the post plays for me.

From Libera's Facebook:

"Thank you to all who braved the rain to come to our concert at the Rynek Glowny stage at Market Square last night. We really enjoyed it and hope you did too."

On the left, filming with elbows leaning on the railing, is FDL. On the right in the yellow poncho is John45. To my right, but obscured by a speaker is Tom413.

Thanks for these pictures. From the impressions here and via Twitter it looks like it was a very memorable experience for all.

--EDIT:
So tomorrow Libera apparently will participate in the Prayer Vigil in presence of Pope Francis. The Youtube channel of the Vatican has planned a livestream for this event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUh2FUQ4Nq4

Update: according to the WYD Pilgrim Guide, the schedule of Saturday's events is as follows:
from 19:30 to 21:00 there will be a Prayer Vigil with the Pope
from 21:00 to 23:00 there will be an Adoration Concert

According to the service booklet from the Vatican, the Vigil will include a time of adoration of the blessed sacrament and silent prayer.

I assume Libera will take part in the Adoration Concert between 21:00 and 23:00.

Amazing reviews. Wonderful commentary. Fantastic photos and videos. Thank you FDL, Tom, John, and others!! :D

The detailed commentaries helped me to feel like I was there right along with you. The changes in soloists are particularly interesting and exciting.
