This is a registration of a concert in the medieval Pieterskerk of Leiden (Netherlands) by UK Libera boy's choir, singing well-known hits like "Adoramus", "Going Home", "Far Away", "Do Not Stand", "Lachrymosa" and other (semi-)religious songs. The quality of the boy's voices is not in doubt; it is of the highest standard, albeit with a lot of New Age music. Less so, may be said about the actual registration of the concert which started to look like a new age disco party in a venerable church, complete with superfluous gestures and disneyed lighting.
The sound quality is good, most of the songs and hymns are quite moving but the registration of the concert is a let-down; one gets the feeling that the choir is commercialized at whatever cost.
