    Music for St. Andrew’s Day St Andrew is honoured by all the Christian churches; in particular he is not only the patron saint of Scotland but also one of Russia’s patron saints—specifically the protector of the Russian navy. The concert programme contained sacred music celebrating St Andrew, as well as music by some of Russia’s classic composers—Tchaikovsky and Taneyev—and Russian folksongs. In addition, 2011 marked the 70th anniversary of the start of the Arctic convoys, which delivered vital supplies to the USSR during the Second World War. Between 1941 and 1945 sailors of the British, Canadian, Soviet and US navies ran the gauntlet of extreme weather, dangerous seas and enemy action on journeys between Iceland or Scotland and Murmansk or Archangel. Thousands of sailors perished on these most dangerous voyages. In their honour ‘Eternal memory’ was sung within the concert.
