Young Choir Libera

Our own choir's last performance for 2010 was two days ago and well received by its Minlaton audience at Melaleuca Court, following the Stansbury effort (now on DVD) the previous day at the Elanora Home. Lots of feel-good satisfaction for all concerned - or, if not, nobody has told me.

As for the video clips on the blog this week, the youth theme can continue for a couple of days. Many millions of people around the world already know and love founder director Robert Prizeman's wonderful London-based choir Libera. The choir itself has been going for over 20 years, and has made several world tours. In the west most people remain unaware that its singers have something like rockstar status in Japan.

One of their best known performances from early days, and since, is the song Orinoco Flow. They have released several CDs and DVDs, and are familiar to a wide television audience through the B.B.C.' s popular Sunday half-hour Songs of Praise. Libera are a fusion of church music and secular numbers.
