Libera returns to St. Louis

Today I received news that brought both great joy and great disappointment: Libera, the boys choir from the south of London, will return to the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis on August 3rd.  That is the good news; that bad is that I can't go.
Here follows the e-mail I received from the Cathedral Concert Series, with my emphases and comments:

LIBERA is coming back by popular demand!

You heard the unique, heavenly sound of LIBERA last summer [it was a glorious time and it lifted my spirits near the heights of heaven], so you know to prepare yourself for something very special indeed.

The boys who make up the South London based vocal band Libera have been described as “normal” and “ordinary”. However, as their recordings and performances demonstrate, the music they produce is anything but. With shimmering, mystical chords and ecstatic harmonies, often performed in Latin, they are unlike any other group you have ever heard [this is no exaggeration]. These are truly sounds to lift the soul. Celestial sounds for a new time.

Familiar to audiences across the world, the boys have a stunningly original sound, which is at once both ancient and modern [it's truly amazing and wondrous]. 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 US, UK, Japan, the Philippines and Korea.

Section 1: $40 [these are well worth the price and are really worth much more]
Section 2: $25 ($15 student with ID, $10 Children 16 and under

This concert WILL sell out, so call soon, or order online at CathedralConcerts.org .  Groups welcome!
If you're free that evening, the concert will be well worth your time.  Here's a bit of a preview:
