It may seem hard to believe, but Sergey Rachmaninov's All-Night Vigil, also known inaccurately as the Vespers (it is an a cappella setting of several texts from the Russian Orthodox All-Night Vigil, a ceremonial event combining not only the Vespers but other canonical hours), was not recorded until 1965, half a century after its composition.

All-night Vigil, Op. 37, "Vespers": Song of Simeon. Lord, Now Let Your Servant Depart. Latvian Radio Choir & Sigvards Klava. 6. All-night Vigil, Op. 37, "Vespers": Hail, O Virgin Mother (Ave Maria). 7. 37, "Vespers": Hexapsalms. Glory to God on High. 37, "Vespers": Glorifying Song of the Resurrection. Teach Me O lord in the Way of Truth.

The choir has what it takes to keep this going, but not to let the music take them over emotionally. On balance, a beautifully engineered and generally very strong version of a work that, freed from the tyrannies of modernism and Communism, is still revealing itself. 1. Vespers, Op. 37 by Sergei Rachmaninov Conductor: Sigvards Klava Orchestra/Ensemble: Latvian Radio Choir Period: 20th Century Written: 1915; Russia.

This release of Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil follows several acclaimed releases from the Latvian Radio Choir under its Artistic Director and Principal Conductor Sigvards Kļava. Rachmaninov’s Liturgy of St John Chrysostom. Sigvards Kļava, Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Latvian Radio Choir since 1992, is one of Latvia’s most prolific choral conductors. He has conducted many premières of new choral works by Latvian composers. You would need to go far to hear a richer, more rounded alto section than this.

This new release of Rachmaninov's All-Night Vigil follows several acclaimed releases from the Latvian Radio Choir under its Artistic Director and Principal Conductor Sigvards Kava. Rachmaninov's Liturgy of St John Chrysostom (ODE 1151-5) and the All-Night Vigil are two supreme examples of choral writing in the Russian Orthodox tradition, featuring music of uplifting spiritual strength. The All-Night Vigil is composed for unaccompanied voices but Rachmaninov created a work of such richness that it can be described as "choral orchestration", demanding a wide vocal range from.

Rachmaninoff composed the All-Night Vigil in less than two weeks in January and February 1915. The All-Night Vigil is perhaps notable as one of two liturgical settings (the other being the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom) by a composer who had stopped attending church services. As required by the Russian Orthodox Church, Rachmaninoff based ten of the fifteen sections on chant.

Performer: Latvian Radio Choir/Sigvards klava. Basses, as you might expect with Baltic singers, have the lower resonances Rachmaninov requires. And conductor Sigvards Klava really shapes the longer-term arguments, especially in the crucial Resurrection setting, ‘Blessed art thou, O Lord’, which is imbued with a special air of awe and mystery. Both approaches are valid; I just happen to prefer the second. 37. (62:31). Choir – Latvian Radio Choir. Composed By – Sergei Rachmaninov. Conductor – Sigvards Kļava. Engineer – Andris Ūze. Executive-Producer – Reijo Kiilunen.
