Product Description


technical comment

  • Craig Hella Johnson leads Conspirare in this world premiere recording of his Passion 'Considering Matthew Shepard', his musical response to the tragic death of a young gay man who was beaten and subsequently died, and who has become an American icon and a symbol for hope and empowerment. This major new work for chorus, soloists and chamber ensemble sets a rich variety of texts by Lesléa Newman, Michael Dennis Browne, the composer himself and many others, leading us from anguish to understanding. Many Conspirare singers are featured as soloists, and the vocal group is joined by a small ensemble of strings, piano (Craig Hella Johnson), guitar, clarinet, and percussion.

    “One of the most original and innovative American works of the past several decades.” Robert Kyr
