All Night Vigil - Всенощное бдѣніе Vsénoshchnoye bdéniye (Op 37)

The All-Night Vigil (Всенощное бдѣніе, Vsénoshchnoye bdéniye) is an a cappella choral composition written and premiered in 1915. It consists of settings of texts from the Russian Orthodox All-night vigil ceremony. It has been praised as Rachmaninoff's finest achievement. Rachmaninoff requested that one of its movements (the fifth) be sung at his funeral.

The Rachmaninov "All Night Vigil" sometimes called "Vespers" is set for up to 12 choir voices, (3 for each section SSSAAATTTBBB), plus alto and tenor soloists. There is one alto solo in the second movement, and the tenor solo is optional in movements four and five, the alternative being that it sung by tenor 1 section or a few tenors. Because soloist involvement is minimal, the soloist parts are included in the relevant recordings. All options are covered.

The tempos for our work are similar to the magnificent recording by the choir of Kings College Cambridge conducted by Stephen Cleobury.

In a liturgical context, there is a short exclamation sung by the Deacon (Bass) and Priest (Tenor) that puts the opening "Amen" of movement one into context. It is printed in some scores, and is provided on our recording.
