Notes and Editorial Reviews

Libera, a South London choral group of boys aged 9 to 15, brings a uniquely mystical and transcendent sound to their first public television concert special. Robert Prizeman, founder, arranger and director of Libera, has taken the simple purity of boys’ voices and, with great care and respect for classical vocal tradition, has created a new sound. ANGEL VOICES: LIBERA IN CONCERT was recorded with an orchestra at the historical St. Peter’s Church in Leiden, Holland and includes performances of “Sanctus” (Pachelbel’s Canon), “Libera,” “Abide With Me,” “Going Home” (Dvorak New World), “Far Away,” “Adoramus,” “Salva Me,” “I Am the Day,” “Stay With Me” and many more from the group’s internationally best-selling CDs.
