Musings From A Musical Mind

Stay With Me

Cover of Angel Voices: Libera In Concert

I stumbled on the following group called ‘Libera’ quite by accident.  I listen to music practically all day long – no joke, either in my private lessons with students – or while writing, talking with friends or returning emails – preparing lesson plans or just relaxing.  This song kept playing on my Pandora radio over the internet.  I tailor make my radio station to play quite an eclectic mix of different genres and time periods.  Oddly enough the title of this ‘radio station’ is Aled Jones Radio – and it has been this way for quite a long time, after hearing one song that I really liked, although I cannot remember now just what it was that made me fall in love with it so much that I would devote an entire radio station to songs from this artist.  Luckily though, Pandora chooses different songs from many different artists that it thinks I will like based on this one choice that I did – and after months of rejecting and accepting songs as they would play – I have about the most perfect mix of instrumental, jazz, contemporary, soundtracks, light classical and the like.
So as I was saying – this song has come across my list of songs and piqued my interest because of the pure sounding vocals.  I remember thinking to myself while too busy to look, ‘this has to be a boy’s choir’ – and sure enough – IT IS!  There is NOTHING like the sound of a prepubescent male voice – no vibrato – just pure angelic sound – clear and effortless.  I’m sure you will be as impressed by these boys as I am – who range in ages from 7 to 14.  Below the video – there is a little information on the group that I also found on Pandora.
Enjoy and God Bless
You are everything I know
Which ever way I go
For ever stay with me 

Venite angeli
Cantate domino
Laudate

You see me through when ever I’m afraid
However far away
For ever comfort me

You’re on my side whichever way I choose
In everything I do
For ever stay with me

Biography

Libera is a boys vocal group organized by music director Robert Prizeman, drawn from schools in South London. Since the age range of the members is seven to 14, the personnel changes over time. The group has performed background vocals for such international stars as Björk, Elton John, and Luciano Pavarotti, and been heard on the soundtracks to such films as Hannibal and Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet. Their first album, Libera, was released on Erato in October 1999 (February 2000 in the U.S.) and reached number five in the Billboard classical chart. Luminosa followed on Elektra/Asylum in September 2001 (October 2001 in the U.S.) and reached number ten. The group signed to EMI Classics, which issued their third album, Free, in October 2004. Visions followed in November 2005. Angel Voices, a compilation released in October 2006, reached number six. Angel Voices: Libera in Concert was issued both as an audio album and as a home video in October 2007. Libera’s fifth studio album, New Dawn, appeared in March 2008 (September 2008 in the U.S.). ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

  1. Oh, that’s stunning! My husband was a boy soprano, now a tenor. My grandpop was, too. He used to tell me stories of how they would be singing in the church choir and when the leader would turn their backs, the boys would start fist fights in the choir loft! LOL He said as soon as they’d turn back, they’d be little angels again. 🙂
