"Ave Maria" is a much recorded aria composed by Vladimir Vavilov around 1970. Vavilov himself published and recorded it on the Melodiya label with the ascription to "Anonymous" in 1970. It is believed that the work received an ascription to Giulio Caccini after Vavilov's death, by organist Mark Shakhin (one of its performers on the mentioned "Melodiya" longplay), who gave the "newly discovered scores" to other musicians; then in an arrangement made by the organist Oleg Yanchenko for the recording by Irina Arkhipova in 1987, after which the piece came to be famous worldwide.[1][2][3]
