Benedict Sheehan: Vespers
Cappella Records is pleased to announce the November 19, 2021, release of Benedict Sheehan’s Vespers, an Eastern Orthodox Vespers performed in English by the GRAMMY®-nominated Saint Tikhon Choir, conducted by the composer.
Inspired by the great All-Night Vigil setting by Rachmaninoff, Sheehan’s composition expands the genre with full settings of Psalms, each of which expresses a full range of human emotion.
Vespers also features virtuosic vocal concertos, including the first for
basso profundo in English, sung by the great American basso profundo Glenn Miller. Music that projects a vision of hope and light for all.
