Rachmaninov Vespers

Rachmaninov Vespers

Sergei Rachmaninov is best known for his works for piano and for orchestra, but he also composed one of the greatest works in the choral repertoire: his hour-long, unaccompanied All-Night Vigil, often called the “Vespers.” Written in 1915, it is the most beautiful blossom in the final flowering of the great Russian choral tradition in the turn of the twentieth century.

We will also present the first movement of Love Letters by Bern Herbolsheimer (1948–2016), the late composer who was a very dear member of the Cascadian Chorale community.

Welcome Home CD

During the 2014-2015 season, Cascadian Chorale reached an historic milestone rare among Seattle-area choirs: our fiftieth anniversary! In commemoration of this jubilee, we have released a studio recording, titled Welcome Home. What a fitting way to memorialize fifty years of beautiful music! Many thanks to all who supported this project.
