Ticketweb Web Site Upgrade

Libera posted on their web site that Ticketweb had problems over the weekend due to an upgrade of their system.

I tried it out today, and it seems to be working fine now. I also updated the Mini-Angels links to the concert tickets. If it doesn't work for you, you can try calling Ticketweb directly or retry their system in a few hours.

The Armagh and Belfast concerts will also have tickets available at the door.

Eternal Light Video - Director's Cut

What an awesome surprise!!! There's a "new" old video of Eternal Light that I never saw before. It's the "Director's Cut" version of the full Eternal Light video! :D

Let me say first that Stefan Leadbeater was the first Libera voice I ever heard live in Nashville 2010. I love his singing so much! He's just perfect in this video.

If you remember, Libera hinted at a video they were filming for a new song back in September 2010. They released the first Eternal Light video on YouTube on November 9, 2011 which you can see here. Then they filmed a shortened version of Eternal Light for Songs of Praise which you can see here.

The director posted his "Director's Cut" on YouTube around the same time! It shows that he/she is from Japan! There are so many scenes that we've never seen before! And some of the boys look so little and young! But it's still the same, beautiful song!

Some scenes are familiar from the first video but clearer -

Love Ben looking up in the trees!

My favorite!!! This could've been the cover for the

Love this one, too!

Updated September 11, 19, 26, October 4, 7, 2012

Libera has another CD coming out called "Ave Maria!" It is being released only in Japan on November 7, 2012. It contains 2 CD's. The cover is now out! It's a combination of pictures from 2011's The Christmas Album and the 2007 New Dawn album. I guess that's because there are new and old songs put together.
