Libera: Angels Sing {a Family Christian review and giveaway}

For the past couple of weeks, I've been listening to an absolutely fabulous CD from Libera.  They are a boys choir from London, and oh, they are just fantastic.

Angels Sing may just be my absolute favorite CD ever.  I am so grateful to Family Christian for this opportunity!


Of course, any album that starts off with Beethoven has to be doing something right.

I tend to be a little picky with my music, I know.  And I have fairly eclectic tastes.

I love classical, and this collection does include some of that.  Not just Beethoven, but Schubert, Pachelbel and Sibelius.

I love traditional hymns, the type I sang in church growing up.  There is some of that in here too.  Amazing Grace, How Shall I Sing That Majesty, and How Great Thou Art.

I like folk music, like Wayfaring Stranger, or songs from the early 20th century like Morning Has Broken.  I like more contemporary things too, and there is a smattering of that as well, such as How Can I Keep Myself from Singing? and What a Wonderful World.

Plus a few more titles that I skipped in this list.

What is amazing is that all these very different songs blend together into a wonderful collection.

I had the CD in the car, and no matter what started playing when I started the car, it calmed me down.  Now I have it on my computer, so I can listen along with whatever else I am doing.

I tried to play this when I went to bed, but I find myself singing along and not going to sleep.



I have a copy to give away! You want this, really, you do.

"America" is astonishing. It takes me right to why our country was founded - a refuge and shining light. Amazing.

Thanks for hosting this!

Sounds like a wonderful mix of musical styles! My daughter's choir did How Can I Keep From Singing this spring so I think that one would wind up a favorite.
