Musical aficionados have long been enamoured with the purity of boy’s unchanged voices. I recently discovered a vocal ensemble that takes my appreciation of the unchanged voice to a new level. ‘Libera’ is a group of young male performers who meet together at a church in South London to produce some of the most hauntingly beautiful vocal works I have ever heard. Their range and vocal flexibility is nothing but phenomenal. “With shimmering mystical chords and ecstatic harmonies, their voices provide a truly liberating and uplifting experience. At times chillingly plaintive, at others climactic and transcendent.”

Libera’s’ most recent recording, Angel Voices, is truly not to be missed. A variety of songs are offered all sung in a style that can only be described as ethereal. “They are boys, and they sing, but don’t call them choirboys. ‘Libera’ prefer to be called a vocal group–a real boy band, if you like. And from the first soaring atmospheric moments of this CD you know that they are unlike any vocal group–or choirboys–you’ve ever heard.”

You can view a complete listing of the songs from Angel Voices and hear sound clips at Libera:Angel Voices

On the ‘lighter’ side……

A perfect Valentine greeting for those of us who have run into trouble with matters of the heart πŸ˜‰

I have loved the music of choir boys for a long time. I will definitely check this group out.

It does seem kind of weird to be in a band that depends on your unchanged voice, I mean, once a band member’s voice has changed, they can’t sing this kind of music. Will the whole band just break up, or will they replace each member as they age?

Love the funny! So true, so true! I am sorry I haven’t been around much, but I have made a goal to get back into my blogging groove.
