Product DetailsSimon Halsey London Symphony Chorus
In their first LSO Live spotlight release, the London Symphony Chorus deliver a passionate performance of Rachmaninov's All-Night Vigil, under the baton of acclaimed LSO Choral Director, Simon Halsey.
Formed in 1966 to complement the work of the LSO, 2016 sees the London Symphony Chorus celebrate its 50th Anniversary as one of the UK's most well established choirs. Made up of over 160 amateur singers from all walks of life, the Chorus has recorded widely for LSO Live, the partnership resulting in several award winning releases - including three Grammy Awards, received for Berlioz Les Troyens and Verdi Falstaff. Hauntingly beautiful, All-Night Vigil is a cornerstone of the choral repertoire, its fifteen a cappella movements considered amongst the composer's finest achievements.
