One of Rachmaninov’s own favourite compositions, the Vespers explore the ideas of Christ in divine and human form, climaxing in the dramatic recounting of the Resurrection and a magnificent hymn to the Mother of God.

Setting texts from the Russian Orthodox Vespers, Matins and Prime, Rachmaninov’s music incorporates ancient Russian religious chants and uses the unaccompanied choir to create exquisite harmonies with colour and precision. The Vespers are enchanting and uplifting, with extremely low bass parts and rich vocal lines inviting meditative contemplation.

NB. Please note venue and start time.
