This is a setting of the 'Ave Maria' taken from Rachmaninov's 'All Night Vigil', an a cappella composition that was premiered in 1915. Rachmaninov was heavily influenced by the chants of the Russian Orthodox church, and this setting of liturgical texts taken from the all-night vigil ceremony conveys this style of singing.
