Pavel Chesnokov was arguably the foremost Russian composer of sacred choral works during his time. He wrote around 500 choral works, about 400 of them sacred. Chesnokov was a devout follower of the Russian Orthodox Church and was inspired to write most of his works for worship in that faith. His best-known composition, one of the few works he is remembered for today, is Salvation is Created. Originally scored for either six or eight voices, the work is a Communion hymn based on a Ukrainian chant melody and Psalm 74. He never heard it performed during his lifetime. During the Soviet era, Chesnokov was better known as a choral conductor than composer. Indeed, he was praised, even by the Soviets, for his skills in choralconducting, though they remained hostile to his sacred music throughout his lifetime.This beautiful choral work has been adapted for SATB Saxophone Quartet. I wrote this arrangement in 2011. Duration 2:25contact me at james.pybus@rogers.com.
