Rachmaninov Vespers – Sat 17 May – Cathedral

Don’t miss this chance to hear one of the great choral classics, Rachmaninov’s  All-Night Vigil, better known as his Vespers.

Based on traditional Russian Orthodox chants and plumbing the depths of vocal range, the Vespers are wonderfully evocative and full of musical invention.  The programme also contains works by Tavener, Pärt and Messiaen.
