New CD of the Week May 3rd - 9th, 2010

The distinctive sound of LIBERA has traveled the world in the last few years, topping both mainstream and the classical charts around the globe. The boys in the group, under the musical direction of Robert Prizeman, come together to produce truly extraordinary music, with results unlike any other vocal group around today. Coinciding with a tour in Japan in April 2010, Libera return with their new album Peace. Familiar to audiences across the world, the boys have a stunningly original sound, which is at once both ancient and modern. Their distinctive flowing white robes symbolize the traditional origins of their style -- yet their music reaches across the generations to a new mainstream audience. LIBERA's success in album charts around the world bears witness to the extraordinary appeal of this unique `boy band'. Enchanting audiences wherever they go, they have attracted an enthusiastic fan base in many countries, particularly the United States following their appearances at the 2007 Kennedy Center Awards and the 2008 Papal Mass in New York, as well as their first US tour in the spring of `08.  You can add their new CD "Peace" to you own collection through Arkivmusic.com.
