Robert Kyr: All-Night Vigil
Cappella Records proudly announces the WORLD PREMIERE RECORDING of ROBERT KYR’S ALL-NIGHT VIGIL, performed by Cappella Romana, and directed by founder and music director Alexander Lingas.
American composer Robert Kyr’s All-Night Vigil takes its formal inspiration from Sergei Rachmaninoff, who in 1915 set the same selections from the Orthodox vigil for the Resurrection. Here Robert Kyr employs an English translation of those selections by the late Archimandrite Ephrem (Lash), to whom this Vigil is dedicated.
Kyr blends Byzantine and Slavic musical traditions with a distinctly personal idiom, granting a fresh approach for those familiar with these texts, and a deeply moving point of entry for those encountering them for the first time.
All-Night Vigil is released on a Hybrid SACD in 2.0 stereo and 5.0 surround sound (DSM192K/24bit), recorded in DSD and Dolby® Atmos Spatial Audio and downloadable to audio servers and devices.
