AUDITIONS for The San Francisco Choral Society― ROBERT GEARY, Artistic Director
Sergei Rachmaninoff’s ALL-NIGHT VIGIL (sometimes called his “Vespers)
This a cappella masterwork dates from 1915, and is regarded as the
greatest musical achievement of the Russian Orthodox Church— as well as perhaps Rachmaninoff’s finest accomplishment. It was certainly one of the composer’s favorites, and he asked that a portion of it be performed at his own funeral.
