The boys of Libera sing ‘Salve Regina’


The music video is pretty sweet.

Since appearing at World Youth Day 2016, in Krakow, Libera has been in the recording studio. Now, just before they embark upon their tour of Japan, they release Hope, which contains this tender recording of “Salve Regina.”

The 14 tracks include traditional sacred works such as “Hymn to Mary” and “Stabat Mater,” as well as beloved secular standards like “From a Distance” and folk hymns like “Wayfaring Stranger.”

The music features the treble sounds of boys of many ages, the younger ones taking the soprano parts while the older boys sing the lower notes. This adorable music video features members of the choir.

Fun Fact: Libera is part of a long choral tradition associated with the Anglican parish of St. Philip's, Norbury. The choir first formed in 1984 and did not settle on their name until their 1999 album Libera. Since then, they have released 21 live and studio albums. Their music has appeared in several movies such as Twelve Monkeys (1995) and Hannibal (2001). The boy's choir has taken their music all over the world in concert.
