Pavel Grigorievich Chesnokov (1877 – 1944)

Pavel Grigorievich Chesnokov (1877 – 1944) was a Russian composer devoted to choral works, mostly sacred works for the Russian Orthodox Church. He is most known in sacred choral literature as the composer of “Salvation Is Created and of “Old Lord God.”  Salvation Is Created” is particularly interesting to me because it can be used effectively to celebrate Christmas, a time when Christians celebrate  Jesus’ birth “to bring salvation;” and it also can be appropriate for Easter, a time in which Christians celebrate Jesus’ “death and resurrection.”
