Rachmaninov, S.: All-night Vigil, "Vespers" / In our Prayers, Ever-vigilant Mother of God (Netherlands Radio Choir, K. Putnins)
BIS: BIS-2039

Often referred to as 'Rachmaninov's Vespers', its fifteen movements in fact make up an All-night Vigil service. The choral writing makes huge demands on even the most skilled choirs. It is here performed by the highly regarded Netherlands Radio Choir, one of the largest and most versatile professional choirs in the world, conducted by Kaspars Putniņš. Also included is one of Rachmaninov's earliest works, unpublished in his lifetime, The Theotokos, Ever-Vigilant in Prayer.

Coro: COR16120

Despite their exquisite beauty, featuring splendid choruses and deeply moving arias, there are relatively few recordings of the J.S. Bach's Lutheran Masses. On this new collection just eight singers from The Sixteen perform the Masses allowing the beauty of the virtuosic vocal lines to be heard with absolute clarity.
