This CD was one of the first recordings of Tchaikovsky's All-Night Vigil op 52. It was re-released in 2006. In this seminal work, Tchaikovsky became the first Russian composer who seriously turned his attention to the national wellspring of ancient church chants as a source of musical material for polyphonic arrangements. Tchaikovsky did not necessarily succeed in writing music that was self-consciously archaic and free of "Western European captivity," but he did motivate an entire generation of Russian composers after him to write church music based on authentic chants. This 1979 recording of the work is now a rarity, and has historical interest as one of the rare recordings of sacred music issued during the Soviet period — a tribute to the pioneering efforts of Vladislav Chernushenko. The booklet, in Russian and English, contains all the texts as well as an informative article about Tchaikovsky’s church music.
