Guildford Concert

Guildford Cathedral. Photo by Yumiko.

Libera's Guildford concert was tonight!!! Aaaaah! Wish I were there! People from all over the world are there! We do know the Premium tickets sold out!

There were 41 boys singing there tonight, and it looks like there are 10 newbies! Liam, Daniel and Ralph were singing, too! It's sounds like it was great! :D

Lucas Wood had his 1st solos ever on "Eternal Light" and "Mysterium!" Way to go Lucas! Sam Wiggin had his 1st solo ever on "Ave Verum!" Way to go Sam! :D

Most songs were sung by the 26 boys who went on the Asia Tour plus Ralph, Liam and Daniel in the center back row. The 10 newbies did sing Gloria, Eternal Light, Stay With Me, Glory To Thee, Exultate and Libera. 

Everyone loved the new song I'm Dreaming of Home. Thomas sang the solo part for it. :D 

They built a raised stage to fit 41 boys. Musicians will be in the front. Photo by Patrick.

Official Libera Pictures from Taiwan & Korea 2013

Libera posted pictures from their tour of Taiwan and South Korea. There are 56 pictures that you can see here. Some look like they'd be great for in a concert program (like the long horizontal ones). I won't post all of the pictures, but you can tell I love the one that is my new header for the blog. Here are some of my other favorites! :D

                                                                               This is just a cool picture!

                                                      So cute how Jonathan is helping Isaac with his mic!

                                                    Looks like Matthew Madine is good at using chopsticks!

                                               I love that Matthew R-A is using chopsticks to eat his cereal! lol

                                           My mom said Taiwan has a lot of scooters, but this is amazing!

I just love this photographically. What a great action shot of Sam Wiggin!

                                                                  Isaac always takes the cutest pictures!

                                                                                  I love this picture!!!

                                                       Some boys are looking up into the air like angels,
                                                             some are looking at the camera, and some
                                                        just don't realize it's time to take a picture yet.

                                                                             So cute just running around!

                                                                                             All smiles! :D

                                    Cool picture at the Taipei Yangmingshan Natl Park volcano & hot springs

I like the way they're standing here.

                                                                      Hilarious - Carlos, Kavana, Luke!

                                                                      Cassius and his giant signature! :D

                                                          Is Carlos really blowing that with his nose?! lol.


                                           Doing the "YMCA". My mom says this is by their hotel in Korea.

                                        I like how you can see everyone cause they're all on different steps. 

                                                              So funny! I guess Henry was the king. lol

                                                            Reverse "Ave Verum" and no white robes! :D

Thanks Libera for posting these! :D
