Format: Audio CD
Having recorded his famous "All-Night Vigil" setting for Hyperion, the Corydon Singers have done a marvellous thing indeed by turning their attention to Rachmaninov's "Liturgy of St John Chrysostom." On first hearing, this was not perhaps as appealing to my ears as the Vespers, but the significance of this music should not be overlooked. It was written as a sort of prototype to the All-Night Vigil, and listeners familiar with any recording of that work will recognise various traits such as lush harmonies, the use of Russian chants, the overtly prayerful nature of the music and a descent to the infernal regions of the voice (there are actually more low B flats in this piece than there are in the All-Night Vigil!). This work is actually longer than the Vigil by over ten minutes, although a lot of this consists of chanting by a Priest (a role taken on by the outstanding bass Peter Scorer, who sounds almost incredibly Russian). Overall, the musical material (melodic and harmonic) is much simpler, not requiring the same virtuosity needed for the Vigil but still very much a test of stamina for the singers. Nonetheless, there are some particularly fine moments on this disc, including the Cherubic Hymn, the meltingly beautiful verse "Tyebye Poyem" ("We Praise You") and the eight-part Lord's Prayer which is frequently performed as a separate work on account of it's haunting and instantly memorable use of two choirs, texturally interwoven.
The Corydon Singers, recorded over several sessions in the Temple Church, London, create on this recording the most powerful, moving and stirring sound. Comparisons with actually attending a Russian service would not be out of place here.

I happened upon this work purely by accident and bought it immediately. If I could choose the music I'd be hearing as I leave this earth, this would be it!
Russian choral music is decidedly an acquired taste; it's lugubrious to many but I find its sombre ecstasy and austere opulence uplifting. When you listen it to it you truly are hearing the innermost desire of the soul translated into musical form.

Rachmaninov: The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom is a 1994 Hyperion Records Ltd starring the Corydon Singers. We also get to hear Deacon Peter Scorer. Ivan Moody has written the music notes. All the lyrics are available in Russian and English. Being a very devout person I love this kind of religious music. Truly an amazing honour given unto God. Highly recommended indeed. 5/5.

Bought it based on hearing one cut on our classical music station. Turned out to be the most interesting cut on the CD. I was ready for the CD to finish before it was ready to finish. Not Rachmaninov's best. But then, I am not a big fan of medieval chant style. So your opinion could well be different from mine.
