Joby Talbot’s “Path of Miracles”

Joby Talbot

A season highlight — the southwestern U.S. premiere of Path of Miracles by British classical and film composer Joby Talbot. This mystical marvel was inspired by the journey of medieval pilgrims on Spain’s Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James), a route that still inspires thousands of seekers each year. The work’s movements — “Roncesvalles,” “Burgos,” “Leon,” and “Santiago” — are titled for the four main staging posts of the Camino Frances, the route’s central axis.

Path of Miracles was commissioned by the British choral ensemble Tenebrae, who premiered and recorded it in 2005 for Signum Classics. more about the recording and sample clips

Whitacre & Lewis: New Year’s Special

Peter Scott Lewis / Eric Whitacre

A special one-hour concert of music by American composers Eric Whitacre and Peter Scott Lewis. Conspirare performs several of Eric Whitacre’s most popular choral works and presents the U.S. premieres of two brand-new compositions, Oculi Omnium and Alleluia.

The concert also features the world premiere of The Changing Light by Peter Scott Lewis (for chamber choir, vibraphone, marimba, and string quartet) based on the poems of Lawrence Ferlinghetti and written for Conspirare.
