Reviews

"...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
"The present recording takes its place near the top of the list. The chorus here sings with impeccable intonation, a richly blended sound that never turns muddy, The recorded sound captures the space of the church realistically... retaining clarity of lines and voicing . . . found the listening experience thrilling . . . Very highly recommended."--Fanfare

"As I listened, I was again and again reminded of Sveshnikov's benchmark recording [1965]. 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 the some of the superlative music in the entire history of the art. It is beyond glorious."--The Buffalo News "We are invited to lift our spirits through a deeply inspired performance of Rachmaninoff's All-Night Vigil. This performance rings with devotional majesty . . . The stunning surround sound comes to us through the combined efforts of Keith O. Johnson and Sean Royce Martin."-- Audiophile Audition

"This new version of the much-recorded work combines a superb conductor of Russian liturgical music with a choir that has toured Russia several times since its early days. The surround-sound ...makes a stunning effect. The conductor's note is the most detailed annotation that this work has ever been given for a recording. ...this splendid performance in outstanding surround sound can be recommended to anyone who wants to acquire the work today. ...a triumph. "--Fanfare "Such a superlative performance requires an equally brilliant recording Listening to the 5.1 tracks . . . I was thrilled about their clarity, transparency and wide dynamics...The sheer beauty . . . is breathtaking, you feel surrounded by the glory of the chorus."--HRAudio.net

Recording of the Month . . . "The sound produced by Jermihov's choir is marvelous. Peter Jermihov and his distinguished combined choir offer a very fine performance indeed and the excellent sound...suits the performance very well indeed. This new disc is a splendid achievement and I've found listening to it an uplifting and rewarding experience." --Music Web International Unearthly serenity and intensely devotional . . . deep exaltation that is unequaled in my experience . . . a strong candidate for my 2017 Want List.
--Fanfare

" ....for this new recording has the essential sound of the Russian choirs, with their bass-centered sonority, and tempos which allow the music to unfold in the measured pace of a devotional service. Better yet, the text-based spiritual approach to the music...stirs at least as deeply as [the] ...Russian recordings. While referring to the texts, you will have the pleasure of seeing the gorgeously illustrated booklet, with a background on each hymn and photographs of Russian churches, countryside and icons. The result is one of the very finest recordings this work has ever received."--Fanfare
