Libera - Biography
|last update : 26-12-2012 04:31|
|The distinctive sound of Libera has travelled the world in the last few years. The group's albums have topped both mainstream and classical charts in many countries, and their recordings hold their place in top-tens alongside major artists like Bocelli.|
The boys who make up the vocal band Libera have been described as "normal" and "ordinary". However, as their recordings and performances demonstrate, the music they produce is truly extraordinary. With shimmering, mystical chords and ecstatic harmonies, they are unlike any other group you have ever heard. These are truly sounds to lift the soul. Celestial sounds for a new time.
Libera's unique sound is due not only to the extraordinarily talented boys that continue to be drawn into the group as the older ones leave, but in large part to their director, Mr. Robert Prizeman. Mr. Prizeman's original compositions make up a large portion of Libera's musical library, and his gift for arranging the music, whether it is his own work, a cover of a pop song like Enya's "Orinoco Flow", or a traditional Christmas song like "Carol of the Bells", shows the genius that he has for reworking and molding the melodies, harmonies, and lyrics (often sung in Latin) to get the most astounding effects from the boys' voices that are available to him at the time. Trying to label this music with a genre is difficult, if not impossible in most cases; perhaps it's the beginning of a new one?
The singers of Libera, who are aged seven to sixteen, attend many different local schools in South London and come from a variety of backgrounds. Although they are boys and they sing, they do not think of themselves as choirboys, but rather as an alternative kind of boy band. I believe this gives them a different outlook and attitude than most boys' choirs, and that attitude is reflected in their sound, as well as their faces when they sing.
While the unique sound of Libera may be impossible to pigeonhole, its universal appeal has endeared the group to fans all over the world, particularly in the US, the UK, Korea and Japan, where their CDs top the mainstream and classical charts and where they pack concert halls appearing in their trademark flowing white robes on imaginatively lit stages.
