This offering by Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir is the most beautiful interpretation of Rachmaninoff's "All-Night Vigil" I have ever heard. Indeed, this work, also known as "Vespers", was one of Rachmaninoff's two favorite works, along with "The Bells", and it was the fifth movement of "All-Night Vigil" Rachmaninoff requested to have sung at his funeral. Up until I heard this recording, the version performed by Robert Shaw and his Festival Singers had been the one I always went back to when wanting to listen to this profound work by Rachmaninoff. This recording is more luminous, brighter, and flowing than is Shaw's interpretation. In addition, the soloists are noticeably in better voice. The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir plumb the depths of "All-Night Vigil" and I highly recommend sending this recording as a gift to your Russian Orthodox and all music-loving friends. Rachmaninoff exploited the depths of the dark Russian basses, and in the fifth movement, you are treated to one of the most magnificent magical deep sounds in vocal music. I suggest finding a quiet time, lying back in a dark room, and allow the sounds of "All-Night Vigil" to fill the air -- I guarantee you will feel closer to the soul of our world.
