Crouch End Festival Chorus’s season ends with two performances of Rachmaninov’s glorious setting of the Vespers, and this concert in Cambridge is the second chance to hear the work.
Rachmaninov’s Vespers was first performed 100 years ago in 1915, and consists of settings of texts taken from the Russian Orthodox all-night vigil ceremony. It has been praised as Rachmaninov’s finest achievement and "the greatest musical achievement of the Russian Orthodox Church".
