One of the most atmospheric choral works of all, it is astonishing that Rachmaninov composed the piece in less than two weeks in the freezing days of January and February 1915. Notable also as a highly religious work, how ironic that the composer had lost his faith by the time he wrote it.

Sung in Russian and without accompaniment, Gloucester Cathedral’s unique acoustic will bring the piece to life!
