Samuel Hybinette (sometimes also Hybbinette), born 1876 near Stockholm, died Feb. 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.
I wish to thank Robert Schlesinger for the recording (Rigoletto) and notes.
Many thanks to Anton Bieber for the recordings and label scans of Tonerna and Morgon.
