Vavilov was active as a performer on both lute and guitar, as a music editor for a state music publishing house, and more importantly as a composer. He routinely ascribed his own works to other Renaissance or Baroque composers, usually with total disregard of a style that should have been appropriate, in the spirit of Fetis, Kreisler, Ponse, Casadesus and other mystificators of the previous eras. His works achieved enormous circulation, and some of them achieved true folk music status, with several poems set to his melodies. The most famous of his hoaxes were "KANZONA by Francesco da Milano" (known as the "The City of Gold" song), "ELEGY by Mikhail Vyssotsky", "RICERCAR by Niccolo Nigrino", and most famous of all, "AVE MARIA by Giulio Caccini" (Vavilov himself did not call it so, having it as Anonymous instead) often performed to this day, notably by Andrea Bocelli, Sumi Jo, Charlotte Church inter alia.
