Summary

A performance of Rachmaninov's All-Night Vigil given last October in St Giles' Church, Cripplegate, by the BBC Singers under the Russian-American conductor Elena Sharkova. Written in 1915 and first performed in the same year, the majority of movements in the All-Night Vigil are based on chant. Despite having stopped attending church services, the work is the culmination of twenty years' interest Rachmaninov had shown towards Russian Orthodox liturgy.
