The Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom was set to music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in 1878, his Opus 41, for unaccompanied choir. It consists of fifteen sections, listed below; some of the sections comprise several different parts of the liturgy. The words are attributed to John Chrysostom, a fourth-century church father. John Chrysostom wrote in Greek; somewhere along the line they were translated to Church Slavonic, as used in this work.

Title: Литургіа Святого Iоанна Златоуста (original), which after the linguistic reforms of the early twentieth century would become

Литургиа Святого Иоанна Златоуста (Liturgia Svyatovo Ioanna Zlatousta).
