5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas As It Should Be
So, the long-awaited CD and DVD of Libera's Christmas concert recorded live at Armagh Cathedral has arrived. And, I am sure, the first question to be asked by those who purchased their Christmas album of two years ago must be "As many of the songs are already featured on the previous CD, is it worth purchasing this album?"
The answer is a resounding "YES!"...

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor recording ?
Rather disappointing ,perhaps I expected too much from recording outside a studio, not the clarity of other choirs I have heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice sing,
I only just heard of them and they are superb. I will be listening to more of their music and probably try to get to one of their concerts
5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Christmas choice,
Thoroughly enjoyed the music and the sound. Creates a real Christmas atmosphere. Good choice of music. Recommend it. Good transaction.
5.0 out of 5 stars Angels singing, indeed!,
Angels singing, indeed! Their voices are absolutely beautiful! This is an exquisite recording and I'm very glad I purchased it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely,
To think that this album was recorded live, the quality of the performance was outstanding. Also a beautiful play list.
4.0 out of 5 stars Deep and Crisp and Even,
Another winner from Libera - with a clear and bright sound. Good to hear Carols sung by a boy choir rather than by crossover pop stars or TV show favourites. Known tunes and some not so well known blend well. The only frustrating recording is yet another one of Sanctus which really is getting tiresome. Time they dropped it off recordings even if they have to use it in performances as a signature tune.
4.0 out of 5 stars Choir of Angels,
I saw Libera at the Royal Albert Hall for the Big Sing in October 2013, and seeing it on Songs of Praise later, made me want to look up their catalogue. This is a lovely album. It's as good a Christmas album as any. the boy trebles are simply divine.
Makes a nice change from Carols from Kings year on year, as wonderful as they are.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful harmonies, well sung and lovely arrangements,
My favourite boy band.A cross over classical album in a saturated cross over market but so much more Classy than the majority.The harmonies are beautiful and often a little different, the boys singing is beautifully blended and balanced and the songs have been carefully and intelligently chosen so that they actually suit the performers.Lovely!
A recommendation too for all Libera fans and boys !! to investigate the incredible solo treble album by Moray WestScotland Boy I can't stop playing it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Libera does it again.,
As per previous recordings Libera has again produced a wonderful musical performance. It is a pleasure to listen to and creates a good atmosphere for Christmas.
5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful christmas songs,
I have been searching for a decent Christmas carols album. This is absolutely the best I've come across! The choir's voices are heavenly, it's perfect for the festive season. Beautifully sung carols! It's more expensive than most albums but worth the extra.
5.0 out of 5 stars Calming music.,
I've not been into choir music before, but based on reviews of others I decided to try this CD out. It is very nice. It has a calming effect, which a person can really use; especially because most people are too busy most of the time. I recommend this CD as a restful way to enjoy Christmas. :) Cheers.
