A bit of ethnography on Hungarian Radio. Two pieces: one discussing the village kántor referring to the local singing master/singing leader and music teacher – who was also the church organist and assistant to the local priest or clergy. The other piece discusses the local school teacher also referred to as the school rector or mester in traditional village communities, who may have had tasks similar to the kántor with regards to music and singing, but was also school teacher for the village children. Both were positions of respect in a village. By Erdélyi Zsuzsanna and Jávor Kata from „Kis magyar néprajz a rádióban” RTV, Minerva, Budapest. 1978.
