The All-Night Vigil (or Vespers, as it is often called) is one of Rachmaninoff’s greatest works, a choral masterpiece that taps deep into the Russian soul. The piece is based on texts from the Russian Orthodox Church, but the mysterious, haunting work inspires chills regardless of religious association-evoking the glowing candlelight and frigid nights of its origin. Two GRAMMY®-winning ensembles-the Phoenix Chorale (recipients of our Best Classical Album in 2012) and Kansas City Chorale-join up for a performance of warmth and flexibility under the baton of Charles Bruffy

The Phoenix Chorale and Kansas City Chorale are regarded as among the finest professional choral ensembles in the world. Their recordings have earned a combined total of ten ions and four wins. Building on the success of previous collaborations, the performances marked the seventh time that the two choirs have performed together. The eastern Orthodox vigil is the equivalent of western Christianity's matins and vespers, combining the two into a single service, usually held on a Saturday night, in which the congregation is asked to contemplate the light of the coming dawn as emblematic of Christ's resurrection. Rachmaninov's setting, sometimes erroneously referred to as simply his Vespers, remains the most familiar outside eastern Europe, and was written in 1915, not for liturgical use but for a benefit concert in aid of the Russian war effort.

  • After having listened to about a dozen recordings of Rachmaninov's "All Night Vigil" I have come to the conclusion that this one for me is the new reference recording and performance.What sets this recording apart from all the others is one very significant aspect: Charles Bruffy lets it breathe. Tempi are slower than in any other recording with each phrasing artfully crafted and it proves to be a revelation because with this choice the music starts to unfold in ways that have not been heard before. The great feeling of sacredness becomes the center point, eternity and present moment are melting together.Adding the impeccable performance of the Kansas City and Phoenix Chorale and the stunning surround sound recording makes for something really special. I would not want to hear this one in any other way.
