Gloucester Choral Society 2016-17 Season
Rachmaninov: All-Night Vigil (Vespers)
Adrian Partington conductor
Gloucester Choral Society
Vassily Savenko bass
Beth Moxon mezzo soprano
Matthew Keighley tenor
One of the most atmospheric choral works of all, it is astonishing that Rachmaninov composed the piece is less than two weeks in the freezing days of January and February of 1915. Notable also as a highly religious work, how ironic that the composer had lost his faith by the time he wrote it.
Sung in Russian and without accompaniment, Gloucester Cathedral’s unique acoustic will bring the piece to life!
£25, £21, £18 and £10
