An outstanding figure in Bulgarian musical culture of the 20th century, Apostol Nikolaev-Stoumsky has a lasting creative presence in Bulgarian church music. His compositions are an important part of church musical life in Bulgaria and they harmonize with the spirit and the ideas of creating a national church singing tradition in the first half of the 20th century.
