Rachmaninov All Night Vigil performed at Tewkesbury Abbey on Saturday 28 March 2020.  Cheltenham Bach Choir

raised as Rachmaninov's finest choral achievement, The All Night Vigil is a quiet, reflective and deeply moving work which was composed and premiered in 1915‑just after WW1 had commenced. At the time, Russia was going through political and social turmoil during the aftermath of the 1905 Russian Revolution.

 

Despite not being a regular church‑goer, Rachmaninov had a deep personal religious faith, which is expressed through this unaccompanied set of choral vespers. Separated into two parts: the evening Vespers and the morning Matins, this deeply spiritual work is full of exquisitely rich harmonies.

 

Cheltenham Bach Choir will perform this wonderful work in the perfect setting of Tewkesbury Abbey.

Gabriel Faure

abriel Fauré is said to have created some of the most beautiful melodies ever composed in his Requiem. A prayerful lament for the dead it is widely considered to be a musical tribute to his late father. The seven-section piece is calm, serene and exquisitely peaceful, providing musical solace in grief. The Pie Jesu, Agnus Dei and In Paradisum are filled with rich, soulful melodies. It was performed at Fauré’s own funeral in 1924.

 

Composed

omposed in 1985, John Rutter's Requiem is reminiscent of Faure's Requiem in its simple brevity and rich choral writing. This deeply moving Requiem owes its inspiration to both the Requiem Mass and the Book of Common Prayer. The Pie Jesu is a glorious highlight and the Requiem Aeternam, which opens the work, sets the tone for this seven-section piece. Performed regularly by choral societies across the world, Rutter’s Requiem is considered to be one of the most popular Christian compositions of the last thirty years.

Mozart Mass in C

onsidered to be one of his greatest choral works, Mozart began composing the Great Mass in C in Vienna in 1782 and completed it in 1783. Scored for two soprano soloists, a tenor and a bass, double chorus and a large orchestra, the work was premiered in Salzburg in October 1783. Mozart's new bride, Constanze, sang the Et incarnatus est. The pomp and solemnity of the work is typical of the grand Salzburg tradition at the time, but the influence of Bach and Handel can be clearly recognised.
