All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
After switching from Warner Classics to EMI Classics in 2003, boys choir Libera's first recorded effort for the new label was Free, a set of music that would come to define the way Libera released albums. Traditional religious hymns and portions of the Catholic liturgy and contemporary compositions both take their place on the set, all arranged for a treble boys choir and a methodically innocent ambience.

    DUH !!!

    Well....this album might be OK for others, but not as great as I had expected myself. After waiting for about two years since I bought the prevoius two albums, I feel a little dissapointed at this one. Libera and Luminosa still give me goosebumps while listening to them, an effect I have not experienced with Free! Think it over, before buying this title.

    Another superb 'Must Have' from Libera

    Once again, Libera delivers an amazingly addictive top quality listening experience. Both their previous CDs, Libera and Luminosa, displayed their youthful talents to breathtaking effect. Now with FREE, they deliver their best CD yet. The compositions and arrangements by choirmaster Robert Prizeman are the work of a musical genius - with the benefit of being able to write the music for each individual boy clearly adding so much to the overall effect it has to be heard to be believed. The beautiful angelic voices of all the boys, individually and collectively, are a joy to be entranced by. Soloists Ben Crawley, Joe Platt, Chris Robson, Raoul Neumann and Anthony Chadney help provide a exquisitely moving atmosphere. It is virtually impossible to choose any favourite tracks. Though my personal favourites include Voca Me, Ave Verum, I am the Day, Lament, Adoramus and Twilight. Those who have seen Libera on Songs of Praise and Classic FM TV and heard them on Classic FM radio will discover a vast range of their talents in a marvellous combination of different yet similar "Libera sound" tracks. For those not yet familiar with Libera, this is an excellent opportunity to discover how magical music can be. A CD to savour every note of every song. It has been a long 3 year wait since their previous CD, but this more than makes up for it. Excellently engineered and mixed. A much improved insert as well. Faultless. Buy it. You can't fail to be disappointed. You'll find yourself listening to it many many times and enjoying it just as much as the first time.
