Rachmaninov. All Night Vigil

Rachmaninov. All Night Vigil
ID: VVCD-00042
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

Recorded October 26-27 and November 4, 1997 St. Nikolai Church Choir of the State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow Conducted by Alexei Pouzakov Archpriest Nikolai Sokolov Cover: Mikhail Vrubel. Angel with a Candle, 1887 All Night Vigil is a public worship in the Orthodox Church and its name reflects the fact that it used to last all through the night. For many decades the worship included some customary chants. It was not until late 19th century that All Night Vigil became a more flexible genre, that attracted some prominent Russian composers, including Tchaikovsky. The premier performance of the Rachmaninov's All Night Vigil took place in 1915 not in a church but in the Great Hall of the Moscow Nobility Assembly. Thus liturgical music became music for the concert halls as well as for temples. Rachmaninov's genius manifested itself in an astonishingly free creative manner of musical composition based however on a deep and awesome study of the Ortodox liturgical singing tradition as well as on a daring and innovatory use of all the advanced methods of the modern classical music of the time. As a result a true masterpiece of polyphonic canticle arose. As Alexei Puzakov put it, you will not find here just the main part of soprano and accompaniment (all other parts).Each voice - and Rachmaninov involves 12 of them - like a human being in real life, performs his or her part which is unique and main for him or her. All these voices merge into a unique and inimitable in its beauty Divine symphony. St. Nikolai Church Choir is well placed to perform the great work by Rachmaninov. It is one of the best church choirs in Moscow, all its members are exceptionally talented professional singers It is a State Choir under the State Tretyakov Gallery. The choir performed All Night Vigil at the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire, at St. Paul's Cathedral in London, but more often the choir sings during the services in the St. Nikolai Church which at one time was Rachmaninov's parish church.

Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

The first official release on the Melodiya label included the first Sticheron by Tsar Ivan IV (Ivan the Terrible) and both Stichera have not been presented on CD until now. Both the works are vespers and matins canticles, and are wonderful explorations of Russia’s renowned choral history.


Ivan the Terrible. Frightening and discrepant figure of the Russian Tsar always attracted attention of the historians, artists, filmmakers, musicians and poets. Interest in him is due not only to bloody halo, but to a deeply creative essence of the Tsar Ivan - a person. “Firma Melodiya” issued an album, which presents two pieces for the authorship of Ivan the Terrible - Stichira for the Death of Pyotr, Metropolitan of Moscow and All Russia and the Stichira To the Meeting of the Icon of Our Lady of Vladimir. Besides them, as a bonus-tracks the are two fragments from the letter of Ivan the IV to the Prince Andrew Kurbsky.
