F. A. Gore Ouseley
Short Name: F. A. Gore Ouseley
Full Name: Ouseley, F. A. (Frederick Arthur Gore) 1825-1889
Birth Year: 1825
Death Year: 1889

Born: August 12, 1825, London, England.
Died: April 6, 1889, Hereford, England.
Buried: Church of St. Michael and All Angels, Tenbury Wells, Hereford and Worcester, England.

Gore-Ouseley was educated at Oxford University (BA 1846, MA 1849, DMus 1854), and was ordained in 1849. In 1855, he was appointed Oxford Professor of Music, succeeding Henry Bishop. At that time, Oxford music degrees were easy to obtain, as there were no conditions of residence. Candidates only had to submit a musical composition, (e.g., for choir or orchestra). This was then approved by the examiner, rehearsed and performed to a small, select audience at Oxford. As far as Ouseley was concerned, this only meant two or three trips to Oxford each year, usually for two or three days each time, as there was no music "taught" in the university and very little in Oxford itself at the time.

Also in 1855, Ouseley was appointed Precentor of Hereford Cathedral, a post he held for the next 30 years, before becoming a Canon there. Although theoretically in charge of the cathedral choir, Ouseley only had to be in residence at the cathedral two months each year, and he arranged these to take place during the summer vacation, when he was not required to be at his College, although such was his commitment that he did make regular visits to the cathedral, which was only 18 miles from his College at St. Michael’s.

His College of St. Michael’s, Tenbury, a "model" choir school, opened in 1856, mostly at his own expense. He founded the College and was its first Warden, which was the greater part of his work for the next 33 years.

Ouseley’s compositions covered a wide range: operas, songs, chamber music and organ pieces. His works include the following treatises:

Harmony (London: 1868)
Counterpoint (London: 1869)
Canon and Fugue (London: 1869)
Form and General Composition (London: 1875)
