For Sergei Rakhmaninov theáfive years that preceded theárevolution saw theáappearance of works that theácomposer himself particularly loved: theásymphonic poem TheáBells (1913), and theáchoral cycles TheáLiturgy of StáJohn Chrysostom (1910) and The All-Night Vigil (1915). Rakhmaninov's religious works belong to aáparticularly inspired period in his career, and represent theápeak of theádevelopment of aánew trend in Russian church music that began with theácompositions of Tchaikovsky, Taneyev, Grechaninov and Kastalsky in theáinterpretation of Stepan Smolensky and theáMoscow Synodal Choir. TheáLiturgy and theáVigil cannot be called works written for theáchurch: they require aálarge choir and particular skill in performance. Rakhmaninov's All-Night Vigil is one of those national cultural phenomena that are nourished on theávital juices of their native land and grow into aámighty tree, becoming an embodiment of that culture. Written at aátime of heightened interest in ancient Russian music that gripped Russian society in theáearly 20th century, TheáAll-Night Vigil is striking for theádepth of its penetration into primordial Russian musical traditions. Theácomposer uses theámelodies of ancient Russian canticles and also creates his own, which are virtually indistinguishable from authentic medieval compositions in their style and faithfulness to tradition. Its skilful mastery of choral texture, its understanding of theánature of church singing, and theádepth of its immersion into ancient Russian musical traditions make Rakhmaninov's All-Night Vigil one of theágreatest masterpieces of Russian religious music.
