"One of the most original and innovative American works of the past several decades."
- Robert Kyr

Craig Hella Johnson leads Conspirare in this world premiere recording of Considering Matthew Shepard, his musical response to the tragic death of a young gay man 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.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
