Notes & Reviews:

This CD captures the exquisite sound of the American choral group Conspirare, as heard and seen on a nationally televised, one hour concert airing nationally on PBS. Repertoire on the disc ranges from classical works by Lauridsen and Whitacre to arrangements of popular songs by Carly Simon and Dolly Parton. Taped live in October 2008 at Austin's Long Center for the Performing Arts, 'A Company of Voices - Conspirare in Concert' is a production of KLRU-TV, Austin, Texas, with executive producers Dick Peterson and Marion Lear Swaybill and director Karen McLaughlin. Now in its 17th season, Conspirare, under the leadership of founder and artistic director Craig Hella Johnson, has recorded 3 CDs and received four grammy nominations.

Nominated for Best Classical Crossover Album, this release of Conspirare in Concert was also aired on PBS. "Elegant and provocative. Virtuosic singing." - Houston Chronicle. " .. probably the nation's best chorus." - San Antonio Express News
