Tom Cully Profile

Joined Choir: 2002
Birthdate: July 2, 1994
Age: 15


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 was prominently on Libera's 2004 album” Free” where he can be heard to good effect on "Stay With Me" and "I Am The Day" hitting an astonishing top C to end the song. Libera's 2005 release "Visions" gave Tom a more prominent role in the group. He shares solo duties on "Sempiterna" with Joe Sanders-Wilde and on "We are the lost" with Michael Horncastle but more importantly "Visions" also sees Tom given a solo of his own for the first time with the joint Prizeman/Crawley composition of "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. From this point Tom became one of Libera's principal soloists and the release of the "Angel Voices" album in 2006 provided Tom with solo parts on "Going Home", a new recording of "Salva Me" and a hauntingly beautiful version of the carol "Silent Night".

Outside of Libera and the St Philip's Church Choir, where he sings regularly at the Sunday services, Tom's great passion is his local football club Crystal Palace F.C. Tom can be found playing football (soccer) or doing magic card tricks with his close friends. When Tom grows up he would love to carry on with music and either be a producer or music director. Whatever the case may be it seems certain that Tom will be a mainstay of Libera for many years to come whether it be singing or helping out with the choir.

  4. Hi to who made this part.I am living Japan and have two daughters and since I want my daughters to like learning English I search music that's kind to kids and i happened to see Libera.Then I click and heard the amazing choir kids and so,I called my daughters and let them see and listen to Libera's music.their so wonderful.My daughters love the sound and trying to repeat it thanks to Libera sons.And they became a fan of Tom,Josh,Ben,Ed.but sad to knew they aren't in Libera anymore and that's why i came to this part.My daughters( 9 years old and seven years old wants to have a photo of Tom and Josh but how can I get it?Another thing is I think Tom's voice fit to a music like an Owl City's style.Do you know "Owl City" His music and lyrics is great.I wish Tom can be a great singer too soon so that we can see him again singing and can able to have his photo and autographs perhaps.Hope I can get his some give to my older daughter as her christmas present.

  7. Il y a un an, j'ai découvert Libera tout à fait par hasard en cherchant sur Internet une mélodie ''Jérusalem'' mélodie de William Blake et Hubert Parry. C'est alors que je suis tombé sur Tom Cully. Quelle voix extraordinaire. Maintenant, il a plus de 18 ans et sa voix a quelque peu mué, mais sa voix reste tout aussi extraordinaire pour autant. Je suis allé à Londres récemment pour un concert (je suis organiste) et j’en ai profité pour aller écouter Libera lors d’une représentation à St George’s Cathedral Southwark. Ce jour là, il ne chantait pas, car à Libera on doit quitter le chœur à 16 ans et Tom en a déjà 18, mais il jouait d’un clavier. Il est vrai que Tom est une légende de Libera. J’ai pu lui parler quelques instants, il est très gentil et très poli. Nous avons promis de nous revoir lors d’un prochain concert.

    One year ago, I discovered Libera by sheer luck by looking on the Internet for a melody "Jerusalem" melody of William Blake and Hubert Parry. This is when I fell on Tom Cully. Which extraordinary voice. Now, he is more than 18 years old and his voice a little moulted, but its voice remains so extraordinary for all that. I went to London recently for a concert (I am an organist) and I took advantage of it to go to listen to Libera during a representation to St George Cathedral Southwark. This day there, he did not sing, because Libera we have to leave the choir in 16 years and Tom has already 18 of it, but he played a keyboard. It is true that Tom is a legend of Libera. I was able to speak to him a few moments, he is very gentile and very polite. We promised to see again each other during a next concert.
