Album Remarks & Appraisals:
The distinctive sound of Libera has traveled the world in the last few years, topping both mainstream and the classical charts around the globe. The boys in the group, under the musical direction of Robert Prizeman, come together to produce truly extraordinary music, with results unlike any other vocal group around today. Coinciding with a tour in Japan in April 2010, Libera return with their new album 'Peace'. Familiar to audiences across the world, the boys have a stunningly original sound, which is at once both ancient and modern.
Familiar to audiences across the world, the boys have a stunningly original sound, which is at once both ancient and modern. Their distinctive flowing white robes symbolise the traditional origins of their style - yet their music reaches across the generations to a new mainstream audience. LIBERA's success in album charts around the world bears witness to the extraordinary appeal of this unique 'boy band'. Enchanting audiences wherever they go, they have attracted an enthusiastic fan base in many countries, particularly the United States, Great Britain, Japan, Korea and this year also in the Philippines.

Broadly, you might describe Peace as a hybrid of New Age and classical - the instrumentation is sparse and largely electronically manipulated, but takes its source material from a light classical and choral canon.
