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!" Quite apart from the handful of songs that do not appear on their earlier offering (more about them later!), there is the unmistakable atmosphere that you experience at a Libera concert. The only thing missing in that respect is the audience reaction, which has either been skilfully edited out or maybe these CD tracks were recorded separately without the audience in attendance. Either way, it makes no difference. This is 'Live' Libera at its best and if you do wish to hear the applause, I would urge you to purchase the DVD as well, as I have.

All the tracks have a distinctly Irish feel, largely due to the additional instrumentation such as the Irish flute and violin. And while we're on the subject of Irish music, listen particularly to Track 7: "Danny Boy" sung completely unaccompanied with ten-year-old Isaac London taking the solo. This track alone is worth the price of this amazing CD. There is also a version of "Gaudete", a Libera favourite from way back. The final track is "What Child Is This" sung to the tune of Greensleeves: absolutely superb.

This amazing CD is, then, a welcome antidote to the overblown commercialism of the modern Christmas. It is what Christmas used to be like...it is Christmas as it should be!

In 2011, I was one of the many fans who requested a Christmas Album from Libera;
my wish came true and I was not disappointed; now two years later (2013), Surprise!!
Libera and Mr. Robert Prizeman release another Christmas album both in CD and DVD versions!

It is amazing, to say the least; I was weary of the idea that many songs were repeats
from he previous Christmas CD, but to my amazement, the songs have been completely
rearranged with instrumental intros and fuller orchestration; The 'Pachelbel Canon' (Sanctus)
is absolutely breathtaking; my favorite piece 'Carol of the Bells' is even better than the
previous version, as if that's possible...I could go on and on, but what I mean to say is that
if you appreciate choir music and Christmas songs as well, you will be in a state of trance almost.

Libera is several notches above all choir bands; for the quality of their voices, their versatility,
and the passion they put in their performances (finally a choir that Smiles); this is a must
for the Holidays, be sure to get the DVD as well; if Libera is new to you, you will be very
happy with what they have to offer!!

A great thanks to all Libera singers, to Robert Prizeman for his arrangements and conducting,
an extra thank you for including several the 'older' singers like Joshua Madine, ensuring the continuation
of the Libera tradition as his smile was (still is) the 'face' of Libera for a decade. Cheers and thanks again!

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.

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.

A refreshing approach to the traditional Christmas carols. The musical accompaniments add an Irish feel to these well-known carols and Christmas songs. A great addition to anyone's Christmas collection.

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.

Libera, what can I say that hasn't been said already. Despite the ever changing stars of this group, Libera go from strength to strength. Love this album despite it now being nearly two years old it is still very fresh and is a Christmas must in my household. Very crisp, lovely singing. Well worth the money.

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.
