Rachmaninov Vespers
8:00pm, Thursday 25 November 2021
St Gabriel's Pimlico

A collaboration with St Gabriel’s Pimlico, we perform Rachmaninov’s a cappella sacred music masterpiece, the All-Night Vigil (popularly known as The Vespers).

The choir first performed this in St Martin-in-the-Fields in 2015, and in the same year filmed several movements of it for a BBC4 documentary which aired the next year.

The full documentary can be viewed on YouTube (below) – our appearance begins around 30 mins in.

In 2017, the centenary of the Russian Revolution we performed a programme of Russion music set around a narrative by Rufus Stilgoe on an imagined meeting between Rachmaninov and Arthur Ransome.

We performed the Vespers again in 2020 in Canterbury Cathedral, and this will be our third complete performance.
