Notes & Reviews:

This spectacular release from GRAMMY® award winning choral ensemble Conspirare features a vibrant tribute to the revered Chilean poet and statesman Pablo Neruda (1904-1973). The recording's uniquely colorful and sensual program was originally featured as part of Conspirare's concert series entitled The Poet Sings. Neruda had a gift as a poetic story teller of deep human experience, whether he wrote of love or of common things. Through choral settings by Donald Grantham, Shawn Kirchner and Cary Ratcliff, all recorded here for the first time, conductor Craig Hella Johnson and Conspirare illuminate the music that is always present in Neruda's poetry.
