I have listen to most recordings of the All Night Vigil, the version under Alexander Sveshnikov with the State Russian Choir(1965), under Valery Polianski with Ministry of Culture Chamber Choir(1986, you can here a young but still resonant Yuri Wichniakov), Robert Shaw Festival Singers version and this one are by far my favorite recordings of this well speechless work.
If happen to buy this recording do not hesitate and share it. As the last reviewer said. Listen to it so you can be more close to soul of the world!
The Shaw treatment is ethereal, otherworldly and gorgeous. The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Chorale's approach is electrifying and powerful.
The EPCC recording captures the movement of the different voices in the ensemble, whereas in the Robert Shaw version, the blending of the parts results in a sweet, rich timbre.
EPCC varies the rhythms and attack so one can hear the beauty and passion inherent in the language. The Robert shaw version draws out each phrase and seems to focus on each note in the piece.
I have listened to this SACD countless times and it always gives me joy.
