Rachmaninoff - Evening Service Op. 37



Rachmaninoff’s Evening Service Op. 37 is considered by many to be his greatest choral work. Sung completely A Cappella this work is the evening prayer service in the Russian Orthodox church...although...not the complete text.

Rachmaninoff wrote Evening Service in 1916, when the future of Russia was about to become a prolonged, dehumanizing catastrophe through the Revolution in which Nicholas II and Alexandra were forcefully abdicated.

But there is in the heart of all Russians, a depth of sorrowful love which receives catastrophe as a kind of revelation which Evening Service so eloquently captures in voice.

This extremely rare, privately produced recording captures this work as it was performed by the Choir of the Papal Russian College.  The person or persons who made this recording is completely unknown. The year of this recording is also unknown. However, we believe this was recorded in the 1950’s in Rome, Italy.
