CD - Rachmaninoff's All-Night Vigil
Item No 008779
by the Kansas City and Phoenix Chorales, directed by Charles Bruffy
in Church Slavonic
Winner of the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Choral Performance!
Released on March 10, 2015, this CD coincided exactly with the 100th anniversary of the world premiere of Rachmaninoff's All-Night Vigil in Moscow by the Moscow Synodal Choir under the direction of Nikolai Danilin. Bruffy and the combined 56-voice Kansas City and Phoenix Chorales bring a crystal-like clarity of sound that allows Rachmaninoff's rich choral textures to emerge as the composer undoubtedly intended; it should be remembered that Rachmaninoff's choral sound ideal—the Moscow Synodal Choir—was a choir of men and boys (sopranos and altos).
