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.

  1. Wow! So excited about more news of Libera’s Guildford concert. It’s really cool that 41 boys are on the stage, included Ralph, Daniel, Liam and 10 newbies were there. How I wish I could be there (I think all the fans must want to be there.) It’s a really classic concert, wasn’t it? The members, the new songs and new ways to perform the songs are refreshing. Thanks for Patrick, Yumiko and Ben share their pictures. Most of all, thanks for your rearrangment of all the information of Libera.
    I found an interview on youtube, and I heard it immediately. But because of my poor English, I could only understand half of what they were talking about. How I wish I can understand the conversation. Can you help me with that? It would be a huge task to type all the dialogue on the blog just like what you did in former interviews (this interview was about 18 minutes), so it would be nice just write some main points of what's about the conversation if it is convenient to you. Thank you very much!

  2. Hello Lexi, The text with one of the photos is not correct. The boys trooping along are not just arriving, they are returing from the refectory after a break in practice for a snac. They are returning to continu the practice in the cathedral.

  3. It's Stefan in Trinity Boy's Choir!
    I just want to show you this video, and there’s nothing related to Guildford concert. So It’s okay if you don’t want to show this comment on the blog
