Sing Nowell!

Our final subscription concert for 2019 features selections from Rachmaninov's All-Night Vigil (Vespers) Op. 37. Premiered in 1915, it was rarely heard in Russia following the 1917 revolution when sacred music was suppressed by the government.

The multi-movement piece found a resurgence in the West in the 1960s and has since become one of the most loved and dramatic a cappella choral works of the genre. The composer remarked, “Even in my dreams I could not have imagined that I would write such a work”. The concert will also include traditional carol singing. Don't forget to collect your complimentary mince pie at the end of the concert.
