Samuel Hybinette (sometimes also Hybbinette), born 1876 near Stockholm, died February 12th, 1939, in Stockholm. His was a really, really unusual career – or rather, a non-career. Hybinette was one of Sweden's most famous surgeons of his time, and singing as a tenor was his bywork. He gave regular concerts, but never appeared on stage, since surgery wouldn't allow him to take time enough for rehearsing. He was well-known for always singing in the operating room, both during surgeries and before, in order to calm down his patients.

Many thanks to Anton Bieber for the recordings and label scans of Tonerna and Morgon.
