SDC returns in 2019 for one of the greatest masterworks of sacred music, Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Vespers. This tour de force of a cappella writing takes traditional Russian liturgical music and expands on it with characteristics of sweeping Romantic and 20th-century music, merging multiple styles of chant, complex harmonic structures and polyphony, and passionate singing that will fill cathedrals and souls alike.
Come join us for this historic masterpiece, written in the torment of World War I, with 15 movements of sublime Russian Orthodox liturgy.
