All Night Vigil – Sergei Rachmaninov
Tue 23 November at 8:00 pm until 9:00 pm
This will be an evening to remember as the Abbey girls and Lay-clerks sing the atmospheric and uplifting music written for the Russian Orthodox liturgy by Sergei Rachmaninov. Rachmaninov’s masterpiece was written in 1915 and this rich and sonorous work is written entirely for unaccompanied chorus and sung in Church Slavonic. Performed under the Museum of the Moon, and combined with the Abbey’s beautiful acoustic, this will be a hypnotic and mesmerising experience – let your hearts be drawn to heaven with the rich sonorities of one of the greatest twentieth century composers.
Director: Huw Williams, The Abbey Girls and Lay-clerks.
