We have very little information on him. It is said that he was born in
1883 in Ukraine in a priest family. He never received
any musical education. In 1901/2, Batorin began to sing operetta, and then gypsy
romances. In 1914, Batorin composed some romances that were well received in Russia.
Sometimes Batorin sang opera, mainly Russian
roles, however he had no success. On his death, the scarce sources differ: either he died in Poland in 1928, or (more likely) on March
24th, 1923 in Istanbul.
He recorded in 1913–1915.
