Dr. Cyril Rootham was given the post of organist and musical director of St. John's College, Cambridge, in 1901, when he was no older than twenty-six; he has held that post ever since. His influence has in that time been enormous, for a number of distinguished musicians of today graduated at Cambridge and came under Dr. Rootham's tuition. He has also composed a great deal in the time he has been able to spare from his duties.

Roland Bocquet was born in 1878 at Saharandur, India, where his father held an important post on the staff of the Government Railways. Bocquet was educated at Bedford Modern School, and afterwards entered the Woolwich Military Academy, eventually obtaining a commission in the Royal Engineers. At the end of twelve months of military life he decided that he would rather be a musician than a soldier, so he went to the Royal Academy of Music and was a fellow student of Arnold Bax. Bocquet's next move was to Dresden, where he continued his musical studies, but his pleasant surroundings and the fact that his first compositions met with the approval of his circle of German friends, decided him to make Dresden his home, where he has lived ever since, except for the wartime period, when he was interned in Ruhleben Camp.
