Customer Review

on 31 December 2001
On first hearing this CD I was reminded of Adiemus, LLoyd Webber's Requiem and Enigma. This is a beautiful mix of classical and the oft abused 'new age' - a blend that is totally successful here. The music lends a perfect backdrop to the soaring beauty of the boys' voices, never overwhelming, simply providing the perfect counterpoint. It is guaranteed to move the emotions, especially the aptly named Lacrimosa.We rushed to get a copy of the first CD - Libera - on the strength of this one and were rather disappointed, but that does need clarification. This one is very definitely more along the lines of Enigma that Luminosa, and as such the voices are an adjunct to the music rather than the reverse as is true on Luminosa. The music has more of a beat and at times that was rather intrusive - to the detriment of the voices. Luminosa, on the other hand, truly does give these wonderful voices the opportunity to shine, which they do incandescently. If you are more attuned to new age/pop then Libera would probably be best for you, but if you lean more towards a classical bent then Luminosa will be a treasured part of your music library.
