Libera - Free

English composer Robert Prizeman has taken a conventional English boy's choir -- usually a haven for sweet songs and ecclesiastical renderings -- and made them contemporary without selling out any of their intrinsic charm. Their stacked choral voices and lead sopranos, dressed up with electronica rhythms, synthesizers, and strings still sound like they could be coming from the church balcony, even while they exude an Enya-like appeal. While there are adaptations of Gregorian chants and Sibelius hymns, most of the songs are Prizeman originals based on those styles, with texts often drawn from Latin Liturgy. Except for the chilled romanticism of '', and the rhythm driven '' whose chorus sounds like a Harry Potter incantation, few of the songs on Free have the anthemic pop appeal of '' or '' from previous albums.
