Like every musician, our singers are missing the joy of performing with each other and for an audience. In an effort to bring us all a little closer together, we hope you enjoy our virtual performance of Sheppard’s Libera Nos, the text of which has a particular resonance and poignancy at the moment. The title – meaning ‘deliver/free us’ – not only reflects our collective desire to be released back into normality but has a particular, and unexpected, relevance which becomes apparent at the end of the film. Recorded at home by every member of the choir and conducted by Harry Christophers, it reminds us that no matter where we are, music is always with us, continuing to uplift and provide peace and hope in these testing times.
