Rachmaninoff's Vespers

  • Choir of the West - Richard Sparks, Director

Vespers is a masterpiece that combines Sergei Rachmaninoff’s own deep faith, his talents as a composer and centuries-old traditions from the Russian Orthodox church. Experience this wonderful master work, not just for its purely musical virtues, but for its expression of the spiritual life of one of the world’s great traditions. It was recorded in the richly reverberant acoustics of Lagerquist Concert Hall in the Mary Baker Russell Music Center at Pacific Lutheran University.
