I have posted up some music by the Belarusian composer Ryhor Pukst (1900-1960).

Ryhor is Belarusian for Grigory.  Information taken from wikipedia in various languages, using google-translate:

Grigory Kanstantynavich Pukst (27 November 1900 in Gomel - November 11, 1960, in Minsk, Belarus) - Belarusian composer. Honoured worker of BSSR arts (1955).

He graduated from the Moscow Conservatory in 1928 where he was in the composition class of Julius Conyus. In 1929 he taught at the Omsk musical technical school, in 1932 moved to the Byelorussian SSR. Before World War II taught the Gomel musical college, then in 1945 - at the Belarusian State Conservatory, a music school and music school in Minsk. Since 1952 - choirmaster, then the artistic director of music broadcasting at Belarusian Radio.
