Nocturnal choral music

Rachmaninov is famous for his beautiful melodies. In his Vespers – despite not being very religious – he fully justifies that fame. This fabulous choral music, rooted in the Orthodox Church tradition, is a kaleidoscope of nuances and shades. The heavenly voices of the Latvian Radio Choir show that even beyond the walls of the House of God the spiritual wonders of Rachmaninov, Sil'vestrov, Purcell and Messiaen can still touch us to the depths of our souls.
