@Libera_rule_ok Not of this cast but the production was filmed in 2011 and that is available on DVD. http://ow.ly/F88Fm
Well doesn't that just beat all? From the previous links to the clips it seemed as though they were professionally recording this production. What a shame. I guess it makes it all the more special for those that saw it live.

Sorry TullyBascombe :(

No doubt everyone is familiar with what is perhaps Mendelssohn’s most famous melody, the charmingly lyrical “O For the Wings of a Dove”. Tonight Guildford was treated to the much longer full version of “Hear my Prayer” from which that delightful piece comes. And what a treat it was with Tom singing the treble solo accompanied by the Vivace Chorus. It is not an easy piece but with his usual confidence Tom made it seem effortless, his crystal clear voice soaring into the high notes with such ease and accuracy. A wonderful and flawless performance much appreciated by the audience.
Thank you Tom.

Good to know he's still in top-treble form, thanks for the report John.

Here's a review of Tom's latest performance.

"Hear My Prayer formed the first contribution to the evening of Guildford’s Vivace Chorus, here sounding dramatic and disciplined in the choral interjections of this famous anthem. The use of Mendelssohn’s own orchestration of the piece served to reinforce the power of the original work, although this occasionally threatened to drown out the treble soloist. This was not helped by G Live’s particularly dry and distant acoustic, which provides very little support for voices whilst boosting the middle register of the orchestra. Despite this, Thomas Delgado-Little gave a solid account of the piece, singing with exemplary intonation and tone, especially in the higher register of his voice."

Sadly no TDL, but a nice “in concert” performance of TOTS by the Aurora Orchestra with sub Joshua Kenney as Miles at Snape Maltings tonight. Difficult to compare with a “theatrical” performance but I don’t think Tom’s performance which “stole the show” last year will ever be matched. Perhaps we’ll get to hear Tom as Peter Quint in the not too distant future.

Given the length of time that TDL has been absent from concerts, I think it would be safe to say that he has left Libera.
