Ex Cathedra - Rachmaninov's Vespers
From Southwell Minster, Tom Redmond presents a performance of Rachmaninov's Vespers, with soloists Carris Jones and Jeremy Budd joining Ex Cathedra directed by Jeffrey Skidmore.
Passionate, serene, and rooted in a deep and heartfelt faith, Rachmaninov loved his Vespers above all his other works. They gave their composer "an hour of the most complete satisfaction", and every performance creates a quite unmistakable atmosphere.
