The Russian Church Choir came to England quite recently and has been giving recitals in various churches. Russia has a fine tradition of church music and, in spite of the political changes that have threatened to destroy them, the old music and the old high standard of performance are being kept alive by such fine bodies of singers as Ivan Denissov 's choir.

SINCLAIR LOGAN (baritone)
Sinclair Logan , singer, organist, teacher and composer, was born in Cheshire in 1897. He is partly Scottish and partly Irish, and was educated at Worcester College and the Royal Normal College for the Blind. His first public appearances after the war were with Lady Pearson's Concert Party, which collected so many thousands of pounds for St. Dunstan's. He has since sung a great deal, but besides that, he teaches, is organist of St. Ninian's at Golder's Green, and is altogether a very busy man. He contrives to make one unaware of his handicap of sightlessness. Indeed, he has made himself independent of it, travelling alone to wherever his profession calls him, even spending his holidays climbing in the Alps.
Theodore Holland studied composition at the Royal Academy of Music with Frederic Corder. He was also a violin student at the Academy, working with Alfred Gibson ; later he went to the famous Berlin Hochschule and studied under Joachim himself. He is now a Professor of Composition and lecturer at his musical alma mater. As a composer, Holland is very versatile. His work ranges from a Violin Sonata (performed in Berlin by Karl Halir and Georg Schumann ) to additional numbers for a Leo Fall operetta, The Merry Peasant. A suite from his music to the play, Santa Claus (produced at the London Scala in 1912) has frequently been broadcast at Christmas time. This Trio in E minor is a recent composition, and is being broadcast for the first time this evening.
