Notes & Reviews:

Written during Rachmaninov's most creative period, the 1915 'All-Night Vigil', popularly known as 'Vespers', is a masterpiece of 20th-century sacred music. Inspired by the Saturday All-Night Vigil celebrated in the Russian Orthodox Church, Rachmaninov's setting is remarkable for its melodic invention, choral virtuosity and Slavic intensity.
