Description
The word "conspirare" derives from the Latin "con" and "spirare" meaning "to breathe together." Here the Austin-based group performs premiere recordings of new works for voices and strings of astonishing beauty by award-winning Irish composer Tarik O'Regan. The title piece (a setting of one of Kathleen Raine's Three Poems of Incarnation) earned O'Regan a British Academy of Composers and Songwriters Award. Other texts include "Had I Not Seen the Sun" and "I Had No Time to Hate" by Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allan Poe's "The Ecstasies Above," and Pablo Neruda's "Tal vez tenemos tiempo (Maybe we have time)."

"This is seven-course O'Regan—and what a feast it is.... There are constant sources of delight to be found in abundance on this exceptionally well-recorded and presented release."—International Record Review

"Not only significant and eminently worthy entries into the modern choral repertoire, but … accessible in the best sense of the word…. The music immediately reveals itself and rewards careful, serious listening."—Classics Today

"Striking, intense, captivating are all applicable descriptions."—BBC Music

"One of the most original and eloquent of young British composers."—The Observer
