Einojuhani Rautavaara: Vigilia – All night Vigil (1971)
Andrea Buonavitacola: Gloria In ricordo delle vittime delle Fosse Ardeatine (2018)
James MacMillan: Miserere (2009)
Antonio Eros Negri: Gloria (2018)

The powerful All Night Vigil, by Finnish composer Rautavaara, had its première in the Orthodox Uspenski Cathedral in Helsinki. In today’s concert, we hear the Vespers part, where broad choral sections alternate with solo part for tenor and for the characteristic deep bass “basso profondo” in Russian Orthodox music.
The concert slso features James MacMillan’s beautiful Miserere, and two new Gloria pieces, to be performed by the St. Jacob’s Chamber Choir at a festival in Assisi, Italy, this autumn.
