We are delighted to announce The Parish Church of St Laurence Ludlow has received a grant from The Ouseley Trust to help reinstate the Organ Scholarship.
The trustees of the Ouseley Trust administer the funds that arose from the closure and sale of St Michael's College (1856 - 1986) in Tenbury Wells - the choir school founded by Sir Frederick Ouseley.
The object of the charity is:
'to [promote and maintain] to a high standard the choral services of the Church of England, the Church in Wales or the Church of Ireland (whether simple or elaborate) in such ways as the trustees... think fit, including... promoting the religious, musical and secular education of pupils attending any school in which instruction in the doctrines of any of the said churches is given and the performance of the liturgy is observed.'
