Featuring the Vancouver Chamber Choir

Vancouver Chamber Choir, Pacifica Singers, Vancouver Cantata Singers, Vancouver Chamber Orchestra, Jon Washburn, conductor.

Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninov’s music for the Orthodox All-Night Vigil - often known in the West as the Vespers - is known as his finest unaccompanied choral work, one of the landmarks of the entire choral repertoire. The Vancouver Chamber Choir combines with the Vancouver Cantata Singers to create a suitable Slavic sonority. As a companion piece, the Pacifica Singers join us for a 21st-century masterpiece and Vancouver Chamber Choir favourite – Morten Lauridsen’s Lux for choirs and orchestra, an intimate work of quiet serenity centred around a universal symbol of hope, reassurance and goodness. And as a little bonus, Gabriel Fauré’s exquisite Messe basse in Jon Washburn’s orchestral version.
