Ex Cathedra
Jeffrey Skidmore conductor

Rachmaninov All-Night Vigil (Vespers) 70’

This unaccompanied choral masterpiece is praised as one of Rachmaninov’s greatest musical achievements. Based on Orthodox chants, the haunting interweaving melodies express Rachmaninov’s deep and introspective faith in the most beautiful terms. Ex Cathedra perform this sublime work resplendent in the fading summer light of Gloucester’s magnificent cathedral.

Supported by Peter Cottingham and Lee Bolton Monier-Williams
