Which piece of music does a master composer choose to have played at his funeral? If you're Rachmaninov, the answer is his All-Night Vigil, or "Vespers." While he's best known for his piano and orchestral works, with "Vespers" he wrote one of the greatest works in the choral repertoire. Based on ancient chants, "Vespers" builds to a climax of voices, at one point featuring 11-part harmony. Now you can hear this hourlong, a cappella masterpiece as it was intended to be heard: in a church, when Cascadian Chorale comes to St. Thomas Episcopal Church.
