The Cathedral Choral Society, under the direction of J. Reilly Lewis, will present Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Solemn Vespers, Op. 37. This epic setting will be performed in the original Old Church Slavonic. No other setting of the Divine Liturgy surpasses this iconic work in musical content, inventive vocal scoring, or the sheer beauty of choral writing. Considered by the composer to be his finest artistic achievement, the Solemn Vespers expresses the whole gamut of human emotion in its yearning to encounter the Divine.
