Rotation between two coordinate systems

Hey all,

Suppose I have orthonormal bases, i.e., each basis B consists of three
unit vectors vx, vy, vz, that are orthogonal to each other. I want to
find the rotation R between two bases B1 and B2, so that

R vx1 = vx2
R vy1 = vy2
R vz1 = vz2

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
