Vespers (All-Night Vigil op.37), Matins

Estonian Philharm. Chamb. Choir, Paul Hillier

Excerpt:Rachmaninov, Verspers: Rejoice, O Virgin

Rachmaninov's All-Night Vigil - widely regarded as the pinnacle of Orthodox church music - deftly deploys "choral orchestration", an array of timbral and harmonic effects, and a variety of compositional techniques, building to a joyous affirmation of religious faith. Paul Hillier leads the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir in a sumptuous performance.

"These vocal artists convey belief in every syllable they sing." - San Francisco Chronicle
