As with all their previous CDs, Libera can always be relied upon to produce a superb musical experience. From the early days in 1988 when they were known as St. Philip's Choir, through to 1998 under the name Angel Voices, and now with the name Libera, they have never failed to produce anything less than sheer perfection.
Despite this CD coming out only a year after their previous best selling CD Free, in 2004, there are new soloists yet the familiar distinctive Libera sound is still evident. This CD has slightly less use of lower voices and electronic accompaniment than Free but it is just as excellent. Michael Horncastle, Conor O'Donnell, Tom Cully and James Vereycken provide some excellent solo tracks and others help provide duets - Joseph Sanders-Wilde and Callum Payne. Some of the tracks are new compositions and arrangements by choirmaster Robert Prizeman, the best of which include Wings of a Dove [ not to be confused with the traditional O for the wings of a dove ], Locus Iste, Recordare and Always With You. Older familiar Prizeman compositions are heard again here but with the new voices, they are just as welcome as the first time round - eg Libera and Sing for Ever.
Buy this CD if you wish to hear the highest quality music performed by such talented, experienced youngsters.
