  • July 31, 2008 Great edition!

    This is a great edition of Rachmaninoff's "Vespers". An editorial note is included & the text with the English translation (as set by Sergei Rachmaninoff) is included as a preface to the main work. Sheet Music Plus made this acquisition a very pleasant experience. Thank you...

  • April 24, 2008 Heavenly Music

    Well presented score except when the sections such as sopranos didvide into three. As I was singing second soprano I found it difficult to read the middle set of notes especially when the tempo increased and the words were unfamiliar.This was a big challenge for our choir and we...

    are hoping that we do justice to Rachmaninoff when we perform this work on May 25th in St Joseph's church Subiaco in Perth Western Australia.

    This piece is just so pleasing to the ears. Whether your audience knows Russian or not, the listeners can still feel what the singers are saying through the melodies and harmonies. One of my favorite Rachmoninov works. This will also be performed by the Texas All-State Mixed Choir (under...

    the direction of Craig Jessop) on Feb. 16, 2008 in San Antonio, Texas.

  • April 10, 2007 Rachmaninoff Vespers

    An excellent score. It has the Russian both and the cyrillic alphabet,and whatever they call the transliteration, plus English translations. All the many dynamic markings are there, and the score is of the right size for choral singers. Not to large, not too small. Especially nice is the incluson...

    of the original Orthdox chants at the end. You can map them against the pieces, see which voices have the chants, and admire how the composer ws able to use the entire chant,and only alter the rhythmic values. A Bach-like accomplishment.

  • March 25, 2003 Absolutely Brilliant!

    This Opus is one of Rachmaninoff's best! I sang it in a choir, and am now preparing to use it in my choir. Make sure that your choir is a strong one, so you can get the Russian depth in the singing. The Bass section needs to be deep...

    , and the Soprano section needs to be high. Take careful note of crescendos, and don't do unnecessary breathing.
