Dimitry Bortniansky (1751-1825) was the most prominent choral composer and conductor of his epoch, leading the Imperial Court Chapel of St. Petersburg to unprecedented heights of excellence as Europe's preeminent choir. The "Cherubic Hymn No. 7," his most popular setting of that text, has been a staple of Russian Orthodox church repertoire from the early nineteenth century to the present day.
