Lawrance Collingwood (1887 - 1982)

At the age of ten Lawrance Collingwood became a chorister at Westminster Abbey, where he sang for five years. This was followed by two appointments in London as an organist, firstly at St Thomas’s Hospital, and then at All Hallows’ Church, Gospel Oak. Between 1907 and 1911 he was organ scholar at Exeter College, Oxford, visiting Russia twice while at university, and going to live there in 1912. He was a student from 1913 to 1917 at the St Petersburg Conservatory, where his teachers included Nikolai Tcherepnin and Maximilian Steinberg, and in addition he assisted Albert Coates at the Maryinsky Theatre. Following the outbreak of the Russian Revolution in 1917 he returned to England and undertook military service, acting as an interpreter for Winston Churchill’s expedition in support of White Russian forces in Northern Russia (1918–1919).
