The subject of the research is the biography of a famous scientist and founder of Russian musical medieval studies, head of the Department of the History of Church Singing opened at Moscow Conservatory in 1866, acting member of a number of academic communities including Moscow Archeological Society, archpriest Dimitry Razumovsky whose 200th anniversary was celebrated in 2018. In her article Shekhovtsova analyzes different activities of Dimitry Razumovsky, his pastoral care and teaching, education, participation in publishing church singing and religious literature, mentoring and guidance of students and followers, and profound research. She also touches upon communication of Dimitry with important leaders of those times such as Count S. Sheremetev, Prince V. Odoevsky, V. Stasov, M. Balakirev, P. Tchaikovsky, S. Smolensky, Yu. Arnold, I. Voznesensky, N. Potulov, A. Lvov and others. The methodology of the research is based on the fundamental principles of the history of music, first of all, source studies, and the experience of the author in such fields as archivistics, liturgic music studies, general and special textual analysis. The novelty of the research is caused by the fact that the researcher involves a number of little-known or understudied sources which has allowed to define new facts and to clarify the scientist's biography as wll as to give a better insight into his activities and professional communication as well as to review his personal contribution to the development of the music studies. For the first time in the academic literature the author raises a question about what is going to happen to the archives and collections of Dimitry Razumovsky's writings.
