Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Corydon Singers' Rachmaninov Vespers or All-night vigil, is one of the richest, most exciting choral records of all. Previous acquaintance had given no notion of the glories of this music: it clearly needs a virtuoso choir and a sensitive one at that to do it justice.

-- Gramophone [7/1991]
