Kalinnikov, VictorThe Complete Sacred Choral Works San Diego Musica Russica 2001 Hardcover Fine Book 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall Monuments of Russian Sacred Music. Victor Kalinnikov (1870-1927) was the younger brother of symphonist Vasily Kalinnikov, who died in 1901. After joining the faculty of the prestigious Moscow Synodal School of Church Music, Victor Kalinnikov composed 24 sacred choral settings for the Russian Orthodox All-Night Vigil and Divine Liturgy. Written in a chant-like idiom, these choral miniatures display a sonorous richness that foreshadows Rachmaninoff's monumental All-Night Vigil.
