In celebration of the hundredth anniversary of its première, Londinium performs one of the greatest of all a cappella choral works: Rachmaninoff's magnificent All-Night Vigil. This monumental setting, enveloping ancient Church Slavonic chant in music of unparalleled richness, was Rachmaninoff's last major work before leaving Russia. It also represents both the final flowering and greatest achievement of the Russian Orthodox tradition before its suppression after the October Revolution. We precede Rachmaninoff's work with Knut Nystedt's haunting O Crux, performed in memory of its composer whose hundredth birthday would have fallen this year.
