Marje Sink (1910–1979) graduated from Tallinn Conservatory in composition under Artur Kapp in 1938 and worked as a music pedagogue and choral conductor. The main part of her oeuvre is formed by sacred vocal music – nearly 1000 songs for solo voice, ensemble and choir and oratorio After the Golgotha. Additionally Estonian Rhapsody for symphony orchestra and numerous pieces for violin and piano belong to her work list. With her songs, CDs “El silencio” (Estonian Radio, 2002) and “Christmas Songs” (Kelam, 2005) have been released. In 2005, annual Marje and Kuldar Sink Award for a young singer was established.
