Белогубова Ю. В., Соловьева В. С. Свято–Сергиевский храм подворья московского Иоанно–Предтеченского монастыря: особенности богослужебно-певческой практики и репертуара (на материале рукописей конца XIX - первой трети XX века) // Вестник ПСТГУ. Серия V: Вопросы истории и теории христианского искусства. 2020. Вып. 39. С. 115-151. DOI: 10.15382/sturV202039.115-151
This article is devoted to the study of liturgical and singing practice of the late 19th — first third of the 20th centuries of St. Sergius of Radonezh church (Dolgoprudny, Moscow Region), which used to be property (Rus. подворье) of Ioanno-Predtechensky Monastery, Moscow. The article studies the manuscript collection discovered in the church of the village of Vinogradovo, whose note material was a foundation of the repertoire of St. Sergius church from its opening to the closure in 1935. The article studies the origin of this collection, its dating and the time of use of the MSs. Particular attention is paid to its repertoire inventory. The attribution of the musical material revealed two stylistic strata and helped to systematise the chants according to several parameters.

Белогубова Ю. В. Духовно-музыкальная цензура в России в эпоху правления императора Николая I // Вестник ПСТГУ. Серия V: Вопросы истории и теории христианского искусства. 2021. Вып. 42. С. 48-59. DOI: 10.15382/sturV202142.48-59
This article deals with one of the periods of spiritual and musical censorship in the Russian Empire, i.e. the reign of Emperor Nicholas I. Since the transfer by Catherine II of the nominal right to censor sacred music composed throughout the country to D. S. Bortnyansky and up to the confl ict between N. I. Bakhmetev and P. I. Jurgenson, the Court Singing Chapel was the main censorship institution. However, since church music is performed at divine services, it is natural that sometimes spiritual authorities, in particular the Holy Synod, took part in approving or disapproving compositions. For example, there was a confrontation between the director of the Chapel A. F. Lvov and the member of the Holy Synod, Metropolitan Filaret (Drozdov). It was related to the oratorio Prayer at the Cross by Lvov, due to which this work was never published. The article also examines the impact of censorship bans on the church and music life of society and both negative and positive aspects of spiritual and musical censorship.
