Libera is a British boys choir, its members ranging in age from 7 to 14 years. This choir has just been confirmed as guests on two of Hayley's concerts. Just my luck, that one of those two concerts is at he Palladium on March 29.
I particularly like the music produced by Libera - and the cpmbination of a choir of boy trebles backing the soprano voice of Hayley is a very exciting one.
The news was published at the official Libera site (http://www.libera.org.uk/):
March 29th at London Palladium & 31st at Eastbourne Congress.
Libera are to appear as guests of Hayley Westenra who is on the UK leg of her world tour. The boys will be singing a part of the concert and backing Hayley. Tickets for all dates are available at Way Ahead box office and also at www.gigsandtours.com
I too like Libera. I have their two albums. My favourite songs they do are 'Salve Me' and 'Mysterium'. Libera are going to release a new cd shortly. Robert Prizeman, who does a lot of arranging for the boys, has written the theme for Songs of Praise, if I'm not mistaken.
I did notice that when the 'Pure" programme was put on HWI that Ian Tilley is the musical director of the tour . Ian also works quite a bit w/ Libera.
It would be fantastic to see them and Hayley perform together. I wonder what songs they will backing Hayley with.
