      The director of this choir, Boris Alexandrov (1905-1994), is interesting.  He is the son of Alexander Alexandrov, the founder of the world famous Alexandrov Ensemble and composer of the Soviet/(after 2000 Russian) National Anthem and other memorable Russian military songs – i.e. The Sacred War.  Both father/son have interesting stories on Wikipedia.
