S Rachmaninov


All-night vigil (Vespers) (Op. 37)

There is an excellent performance of this Work by Groot Omroepkoor under Sigvards Klava on YouTube starting here.

Here is a "clickable" Table of the available Midi Files for this Work. Note that it is assumed that, to keep them from getting bored, in No: 4, "Gladsome light", the Bass IIIs will be singing the Bass II part unless they have something of their own. Note also that in Nos: 8 and 12 ("Praise the name of the Lord", and "The Great Doxology"), some of the "first" and "second" Voices are further divided into "upper" and "lower" parts, as indicated. However, note again that though in a number of places some of the "first" and "second" Voices are in the Score also further divided briefly into "upper" and "lower" parts, nevertheless - as indicated by the "undivided" comment in the Table below - they are not so divided in these Files.

My thanks to Dennis Drews and the ChoralTech MIDI/MP3 Library, whose Midi Files I used as the starting point for my own.
