One of the most popular Ave Marias is being misattributed to Caccini, the "Ave Maria" was in truth composed in the 1970s by Russian lutenist Vladimir Vavilov. Vavilov, who had a habit of attributing his compositions to famous composers, recorded the piece in [1972] 1970, attributing it to "Anonymous" on the album. Following Vavilov's death, Caccini's name was erroneously attached to the piece in subsequent recordings and performances.

Ave Maria (Vavilov)

"Ave Maria" is a popular and much recorded aria composed by Vladimir Vavilov around [1972] 1970.
It is [...] generally misattributed to Baroque composer Giulio Caccini.
Vavilov himself published and recorded it on the Melodiya label with the ascription to "Anonymous" in [1972] 1970.
It is believed that the work received its attribution to Giulio Caccini after Vavilov's death, by organist Mark Shakhin (one of its performers on the mentioned "Melodiya" longplay), who gave the "newly discovered scores" to other musicians; then in an arrangement made by the organist Oleg Yanchenko for the recording by Irina Arkhipova in 1987; then the piece become be famous worldwide[1][2][3].
