‘All Night Vigil’ – Rachmaninov Vespers, Russian folksongs and Russian Ensemble music

Our November concert will comprise the hauntingly beautiful music by Sergei Rachmaninov.

In his All-Night Vigil, Rachmaninov sets to music a range of liturgical texts, drawn from the night-time services of Vespers and Matins of the Russian Orthodox Church. Eye Bach Choir invites you to share a musical experience full of drama and intensity and to be transported to a Russia of fervent Christianity, which whilst being recognisable to us, at the same time feels mysterious and almost magical. Immersion in all things Russian will be reinforced by performances from Muzika Lyra, a chamber trio formed in 2015, that specialises in Russian music, featuring works for piano, violin and voice.

Tickets can be purchased at Eye Pharmacy, and direct from our Ticket Manager by phoning 01379 871272 or by email at tickets@eyebachchoir.co.uk. Tickets can then be collected at the Concert venue.

When at the Concert please do consider buying one of our informative and often amusing Concert programmes written by David Ransom our Friends Coordinator and past Chairman.
