This is a gorgeous production of this major choral work. It was recorded, edited and mastered by Reference Recordings' own engineering team: Keith O. Johnson and Sean Royce Martin. Conducted by Peter Jermihov (internationally recognized specialist in Russian and Orthodox liturgical music), The Gloriæ Dei Cantores (directed by Richard K. Pugsley), is joined by members of the St. Romanos Cappella, The Patriarch Tikhon Choir, and The Washington Master Chorale. Soloists Dmitry Ivanchenko and Mariya Berezovska, of the National Opera of Ukraine in Kiev, join the seventy-seven singers for this landmark collaboration. Vadim Gan, protodeacon under the First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, sings the clergy exclamations with Dmitry Ivanchenko.
Recorded in the lovely acoustics of The Church of the Transfiguration, Orleans, MA.

"...a landmark recording, one that is destined to become the new standard for this work. And if you don't know the Rachmaninoff 'All-Night Vigil ' yet, THIS is the recording you should get to begin your acquaintance. You will have to wait a long time before something better comes along!" - Musica Russica
"Such a superlative performance requires an equally brilliant recording...The sheer beauty . . . is breathtaking, you feel surrounded by the glory of the chorus." - HRAudio.net
"As I listened, I was again and again reminded of Sveshnikov's benchmark recording . The musical virtuosity never overshadows the worship conveyed in the text, but rather augments it. The quality of the recording itself is luxuriant . . . a bass section that is virtually unmatched . . . I should add that the fifty-two page booklet that comes with the recording is delightful. To me Jermihov's recording now stands alongside Sveshnikov's as its equal." - Oktavism.com
"The combined choirs attain a sound that is rare outside of Russia, a rich bass-centered sonority. The choir's blend and pitch are outstanding. ...an authentic Russian sound . . . ...it would be hard to beat the current recording. Recommended!" - Fanfare
"For those who have never heard Rachmaninoff's 'All-Night Vigil' in an exemplary performance, this is a superlative recording of some of the superlative music in the entire history of the art. It is beyond glorious." - The Buffalo News
