Colchester Chamber Choir presents Rachmaninoff Vespers
A candlelit performance of Rachmaninoff’s sumptuous score, for a cappella choir.
Written in 1915 in just two weeks, Rachmaninoff’s Vespers (All Night Vigil) is the crowning achievement of the Russian Orthodox tradition in Imperial Russia – before the revolution silenced it for decades.
One of the most challenging works in the choral repertoire, the Vespers cover a wide emotional range and display Rachmaninoff at the peak of his creative powers.
