Arundel Concert

Well, I just woke up here in Chicago. But over in the UK it is 3pm on Arundel concert day! And fans are already lined up! Patrick, Yorkie, Pax Tecum, Martin, Dani and Murkskis are in line. But the first person there is a woman from Korea who got there at 7 am! Now that's a fan! :D

With about 5 hours to go til the concert, Patrick has seen Jonathan and Tiarnan working with the crew. Daniel will be watching in the audience.

At 4:30 p.m. Arundel time, the Libera boys just arrived at the cathedral to rehearse!

Signed ones cost £8, unsigned are £2.

There are 26 boys. Anthony Blake, Bertie Smart and Sam Wiggin were not on the Asia Tour, and Ciaran was on Asia Tour but not here today.

It is the same song list as Singapore and Japan 2012 concerts.

Patrick said that sitting on the right side of the front row there were 7 little, mini-boys from the choir! You can see 4 of them in this picture with their dark blue, hooded coats on. :D

Patrick said it was an "incredibly good concert. Everyone did a perfect performance." Matthew Jansen's voice was clear and sweet.

Stefan did not have an individual solo but did duets with Ralph as in Japan. Ciaran's solo on "Dies Irae" was done by Matthew R-A. I would have liked to have heard that! :)

Ben Philipp was there helping Ben Crawley as Concert Producer! How cool is that?! Alfie Smart was also in the audience! I think Bertie is his brother! :D

Congratulations, Libera, on another great concert!


  1. Today was a very special and magical day as our Prayer Messengers delivered, yet again, God's message of Peace, Hope, and Love to the world. Libera's music is by far the most wonderful method we have to remind us each day of the power of these. It's the melody within the heart that helps us to endure the struggles of every day life. "Music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity." It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, what country we live in, what language we speak, Libera's music is indeed a universal medicine for life. The power in voice of these little angels and the genius of their leader is the melody my heart sings. If you seek an angel with an open heart, you shall always find one. The Libera Nation has found them! "This melody is for you; you must listen not with your ears but with your soul." Pay attention to those little whispers in your heart - they could be your own angels speaking to you, and only those of us who will listen quietly with our hearts can hear them.
    With many around the world just able to read about this moment today, we are still forever blessed just knowing that it exists. "The miracle is this: the more we share the more we have." The Libera Nation will share this miracle to all who seek it..forever..without hesitation and without discrimination. "Respect, caring and Love must be shared", for it's only through sharing the message of these beautiful angels that friendships are born. Libera's music is the light in our window, the Love in our hearts, and the passion in our soul. It is eternal. Always remember this.
    For those who have not yet experienced the magical mountain of melodies in person don't worry, you are not alone. Only God knows if you or I will ever have this opportunity in our lifetime. But I promise you no matter where you go or what you do in will "Never Be Alone" because the light that is LIBERA will forever be "Always With You."
    Do you know me, who I am?
    I am always with you
    I am near you every day,
    Always share what you do.

    Libera Forever,
