Rachmaninoff Vespers - Colchester Chamber Choir

A candlelit performance of Rachmaninoff's powerfully evocative Vespers, or All-night Vigil - a magnificent work performed in the stunning acoustic of St. John’s cathedral.

Details

Colchester Chamber Choir, one of the most acclaimed small choirs in East Anglia, returns to St. John the Baptist’s Catholic Cathedral in Norwich with a candlelit performance of Rachmaninoff's powerfully evocative Vespers, or All-night Vigil. The choir performed the work to a sell-out audience in Coggeshall earlier this year.
Musical director Roderick Earle says: ‘Written in 1915, Rachmaninoff’s Vespers was one of the last major musical works to emerge from Imperial Russia before the Revolution. The music is a complete wonder! Rachmaninoff weaves an amazing tapestry of sound which offers not only traditional orthodox chant but carries the listener into a soundscape of shimmering bells and imagined angel choirs. The music propels one from moments of hushed introspection to spellbinding climaxes of ecstatic joy.
