It has been praised as Rachmaninoff's finest achievement  and "the greatest musical achievement of the Russian Orthodox Church". The title of the work is often mis-translated as simply Vespers. This is both literally and conceptually incorrect as applied to the entire work: only the first six of its fifteen movements set texts from the Russian Orthodox canonical hour of Vespers.
