Rachmaninov Vespers by candlelight

  • St Martin-in-the-Fields Trafalgar Square London, WC2N 4JH United Kingdom (map)

The second of tonight's concerts features festival regulars, The Purcell Singers. Mark Ford conducts this brilliant choir in Rachmaninov's epic Vespers, or All-Night Vigil, with its legendary low-bass voices and melodies based on traditional chant, to transport us to the unique soundworld of the Russian Orthodox Church. The Purcell Singers’ performances are always a festival highlight and we are delighted to welcome them for this late-night concert on our opening night in the beautiful surroundings of a candlelit St Martin’s.
