    Rachmaninov's Vespers by Candlelight: The Choir of St Martin-in-the-Fields
    Choir of St Martin-in-the-Fields, Tom Williams
    Clifton Cathedral Bristol BS8 3BX
    United Kingdom

    A late evening choral meditation, fusing the dramatic and the devotional in this candlelit performance by the choir of the iconic London church, St Martin-in-the-Fields.

    Rachmaninov’s All-night vigil (Vespers) stands apart as the supreme achievement in the music of the Russian Orthodox Church. Serene, uplifting and spiritual, Rachmaninov unifies the ancient chants of the Orthodox Church with his own rich harmonic language in a poignant and powerful feast of choral textures and sounds.

    Vespers, 'All-night vigil'
    Sergey Rachmaninov (1873-1943)
