“A vivid stream courses beneath Hope of Loving,” observed a Conspirare audience member, “a stream of thrumming, heart-beating voices constantly being born.” Hope of Loving, choral music of Jake Runestad, is available on CD and online streaming starting next month. Made possible by an anonymous donor, the recording puts to music inspiring texts by contemporary poets, American naturalists, and ancient mystics, “As I listened to the leading voices of Conspirare, their inestimable beauty plucked my heart’s petals, each one for Love’s hope.” Also, perfect listening in Austin traffic.
