Notes & Reviews:

"if you missed [the first] release, don't hesitate to consider this, especially for the Howells, Pizzetti, and Whitacre. The recording was made in the famed acoustics of the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy, NY - need I say more?" -All Music Guide

Gramophone Magazine
The perfect, and perfectly lovely, unity of Conspirare's choral tone was not entirely welcome. But they're not bland: their care for words and expression guards against that, as does their alertness to changes of mood, whether by movement or modulation. There is a constant assurance of intelligent direction.

The Independent on Sunday
As Conspirare, the Texas-based Company of Voices and pianist Craig Hella Johnson challenge Britain's choral mavens in this graceful reading of Howells' Requiem, with its sublime third and fifth movements.
