There has surely never been singing quite like this. Robert Prizeman has created a unique instrument with his south London singing group, Libera. We have already witnessed the power and magic of this instrument in the earlier albums, Libera and Luminosa. There is further enchantment in this latest CD, "FREE". Within the genre, it includes a wide range of material - the wistfully sweet solo ('Song of Enchantment', 'Do Not Stand at My Grave', 'Stay With Me'), the beautifully re-worked hymn-tune ('Be Still my Soul', 'I Vow To Thee', 'Twilight', 'When a Knight'), the intense, baroque-style mini-cantata ('Voca Me'), and the new-age-mystical ('I Am The Day', 'Ave Verum'). But there is more - wonderfully more - as Prizeman seems to experiment with the boundless capabilities of his choir. 'Lament' is a darkly mysterious meditation on traditional plainsong, 'New Heaven' a deeply soulful reflection on ancient words, while 'Adoramus' is a dynamic and multi-coloured finale that exploits all the choir's many virtues, combining intimate solo introspection with dazzling, exuberant choral climaxes. Accompaniments, both acoustic and synthesized, are stylish and well judged throughout, offering more variety than the previous albums. And yet, magical though Prizeman's arrangements and compositions are, it is the singers' own voices that make this CD so remarkable - there is a youthful freshness and energy and directness, there is a technical command so mature that it goes unnoticed, and there is age-old wisdom in the sheer musicality of it all. Yes, the singers are young boys, but do not be deceived - their artistry is fully grown. The whole experience is exquisitely beautiful, and will touch all but the hardest of hearts. There has surely never been singing quite like this.
