Rachmaninoff Vespers by candlelight


The Choir of King’s College London makes a welcome return to the Barnes Music Festival, performing Sergei Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil. More typically known as the ‘Vespers’, Rachmaninoff’s composition draws on the sounds of Orthodox worship—particularly the singing of chant and the ringing of bells, both of which permeate the work. Since its premiere in 1915, the All-Night Vigil has established itself as a work dear to choirs and audiences alike.

With recent recordings under Joseph Fort recognised as ‘a performance of astonishing intensity and musicality’ (Gramophone) and ‘English choral singing at its best’ (Choir and Organ Magazine), the Choir of King’s College London is widely acclaimed as one of the leading collegiate choirs in the country.
