Program Notes

Salvation Is Created is a choral work composed by Pavel Tchesnokov in 1912. It was one of the very last sacred works he composed before he was forced to turn to secular arts by the Soviet government. Although he never heard his own composition performed, his children had the opportunity to in the years following his death. Salvation Is Created was originally published in 1913 by J. Fischer and Bro., but its popularity drove editors to produce many different versions in both Russian and English. Scored for either six or eight voices, the work is a communion hymn based on a synodal Kievan chant melody and Psalm 74.
