The article is devoted to the panoramic historical review of works by N. Gogol's plots in the Russian music. The overall historical picture of development of the Gogol direction in musical theater and in other genres is created. In the XIXth century the history of process is traced from the moment of his formation – in 1840 - 1850, from A. Verstovsky, A. Serov, M. Glinka's unrealized plans, etc. The culmination falls on the last quarter of the century when there are P. Tchaikovsky, N. Rimsky-Korsakov, N. Lysenko's operas, unfinished operas by M. Mussorgsky. The conclusion is drawn that for the XIXth century the appeal to Gogol's poetic images, his fantasy, national images and household humour is characteristic. The XX century opens a new stage in development of a musical gogoleana. On the example of works of D. Shostakovich, Yu. Butsko, N. Kuznetsov, R. Shchedrin, A. Schnittke and young composers – S. Nesterova, A. Bespalova, V. Kruglik it is shown that the main lines of the Russian gogoleana of this time are connected with the appeal to Gogol's realism, his social accusatory satire, the embodiment of a subject of "the slight person". The author of article comes to a conclusion that works on Gogol's plots are a perspective and considerable direction in the Russian music. In the conclusion on the example of the oratorio " Hear, my God, my voice" V. Dovgan it is suggested that in the XXIst century the new turn in the musical gogoleena - the embodiment of philosophical aspects and sacral aspirations of the writer is planned
