The First Airing of Libera's Washington DC DVD!!!

UPDATED - December 15 &18, 2014

Aaaaah! The first airing of Libera's new DVD filmed in Washington DC in August is tonight! And you lucky people in Buffalo, NY get to see it first! It's airing on Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 8:00 - 9:30 p.m. EST on PBS station WNED. It looks like it will then be replayed from 9:30 - 11:00 p.m. on the same night. You can see their schedule here.

We also know that the name of the new DVD/CD will be "Angels Sing, Libera In America." :D

Buffalo also got to be the first city to see Libera's Christmas DVD, "Libera - Angels Sing, Christmas In Ireland" in October 2013. That one was special because Josh Madine flew to Buffalo to be on the live show. See here. Is there anyone who is able to watch the Buffalo station that would record, not the Libera DVD part, but the part where the hosts talk about the DVD? But we'd still love to know what you thought of the DVD! I've heard it all turned out beautifully. 

Libera fan, Kent R, uploaded WNED's promo commercial for the new DVD. You can hear Cassius O'Connell-White speaking! :D

Here's what is said -

Cassius - Angel Voices - Libera In America. We've traveled all the way from London for our first production for PBS to be recorded in the U.S. We're singing in the amazing Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC, and the music is, well, Libera-like.

Announcer - Thursday night at 8:00 on WNED. 

You can get the CD/DVD as a gift by donating to WNED here. Just fill in the donation form and scroll down to choose the Libera CD for $72, DVD for $96, or CD+DVD for $156. 

I wonder if this means that the release date for the CD and DVD will be earlier than March. :D   


  1. Thanks for taking time to post this info. Kent! It appears Cassius voice in promo is now a bit deeper compared to last Christmas release. After the promo I noticed among the youtube video selections that appeared was Josh's PBS pledge break interviews. Always good to see him and hear about the background and preparation involving the boys. If you listen to all the breaks, you also get a hint of the playlist for the CD/DVD and likely their USA tour this spring to support the marketing. Looking forward to getting tickets for Boston Concert April 1. Hope they insert "Danny Boy" for all with Irish roots that immigrated to New England.

  2. Hi, tmirish7! You're welcome! Yes, Cassius is now a back row boy. I wrote about Josh's appearance on Buffalo PBS in December here - So happy for you that you get to go to their Boston concert! I hope Isaac sings "Danny Boy" also. :D

  3. I can't wait to see them live, I started listening to them back in the early 90s, and have marveled at how well the sound stays perfect over the years. Robert Prizeman is a genius. I live in Florida but have family in New England, so I'll be flying up to see them in Boston. I've already been warned to bring tissues, especially when America The Beautiful gets played lol. But the entire show will be incredible, this has been on my bucket list for some time.
