1812 Ouverture Solenelle' was written by Tschaikowsky in 1880 to commemorate Russia's defense of Moscow against Napoleon's advancing Grande Armee at the 'Battle of Borodino' in 1812. The overture debuted in the 'Cathedral of Christ the Saviour' in Moscow in August 1882. The overture is best known for its climactic volley of cannon fire, ringing chimes, and brass fanfare finale. In this transcription the introduction of the Slavic Orthodox 'Troparion of the Holy Cross' is also scored for a choir (SATB).
