Thomas Cully has been part of the Libera legend since he was 7, singing his first feature on the 2002 Songs of Praise video "There is a Green Hill" with fellow chorister Michael Horncastle. Almost straight away Tom established himself as a proficient singer of the high notes, a task he particularly enjoys and regards as play rather than work. His flair for these high motifs was first observed in performances of one of the choir's best known songs, "Sanctus", where he shared the top part with Ben Crawley and Joe Platt - a role passed on from Liam O'Kane and Steven Geraghty.
Tom's talent can be heard on two of Libera's albums - Free (2004) and Visions (2005) - in songs such as "Stay With Me", "Sempiterna" and "We are the Lost", as well as a brilliant top C to end "I am the Day". The Visions album also gave Tom his first solo song, the seemingly reassuring yet slightly unsettling "Always With You". Tom loves to sing in live performances and his efforts for these have been equally remarkable, whether it be with Hayley Westenra, Aled Jones or concerts by Libera alone on both 2005 tours.
He also took part in the world premier of Preisner's Silence Night and Dreams in Athens.
Thomas Cully can be heard in one episode of Foyle's War. On Libera's new album [ New Dawn ]Thomas has 6 solos, one of which is a truly wonderful version of Bach's Air on the G string.
Tom ended his solo career in Libera by singing the solo for Ave Virgo in the album "Peace". A fine job he did too!
There is also a Japanese version of the CD (TOCP 70100) which has an extra track: 16 - Sempiterna Remix [via iTunes] and a bonus video of Far Away.
A new CD/DVD was released in March 2007 to coincide with their April tour there (TOCP 70191). It is the same as the original (TOCP 70100) but with Do Not Stand At My Grave from Free as track 16. It also has a DVD of 6 videos: I am the day, Voca Me, Locus Iste, Do not stand at my grave, and 2 versions of Far Away.
