Rachmaninow: Vespers op. 37 for mixed choir a cappella

Description

Sergei Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil is his last contribution to Russian Orthodox church music. The liturgical model for this work is a worship service which occurs the evening before sacred holidays and consists of a succession of prayers, readings and chants. In this composition for a cappella choir Rachmaninoff was able to create a unity between the original chants of the Orthodox Church and his new musical ideas to achieve such a profound emotional depth that the All-Night Vigil was crowned with a triumphal success upon its premiere in 1915. In this new edition the text is underlaid in Church Slavonic in Latin transcription, as well as in a singable German translation. It also contains an English pronunciation table.
