WASO Chorus Sings: Vespers
A sublime work drenched in rich harmonies.
Sergei Rachmaninov had a deep and very personal connection to the sacred music of his homeland, which he expressed most profoundly in his reflective set of choral vespers.
Separated into two parts, the evening Vespers and the morning Matins, this sublime work is drenched in rich harmonies that will resonate in the magnificent acoustics of St Mary’s Cathedral.
