    Program Notes
    Pavel Tschesnokoff (1877–1944) was a leading composer of Russian church music until the formation of the Soviet Union in 1917, at which point all composition of sacred music in Russia came to a halt. Tschesnokoff’s music was not performed publicly again until 1991, long after his death. With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, there was a resurgence of music, particularly of choral groups, in the Russian Orthodox Church, and many congregations favored familiar compositions from the pre-Revolutionary years, such as “Salvation is Created,” Tschesnokoff’s most famous hymn. The text of the hymn is as follows:

    Let Thy Holy Spirit come upon us on earth,
    Alleluia, Alleluia!

    - Gary Gackstatter
