      Rachmaninoff: All-Night Vigil, Op 37: Excerpts

      Gloriae Dei Cantores / Peter Jermihov

      Beginning in 2014, director Richard Pugsley, the Gloriae Dei Cantores choir and conductor Peter Jermihov began preparing extensively to record this choral masterpiece by Rachmaninoff. The group is known for their extensive commitment to the vision of the composer and the expression of the text through the music. Rachmaninoff, although not an avid church goer, was, unquestionably, a pious Orthodox Christian. The spiritual and cultural roots of sacred music were ingrained into his consciousness.
