Gore Ouseley

Birth / Death Dates

Frederick Arthur Gore Ouseley was born in London, the son of Sir Gore Ouseley, and manifested an extraordinary precocity in music, composing an opera at the age of eight years. In 1844, having succeeded to the baronetcy, he entered at Christ Church Oxford, and graduated BA in 1846 and MA in 1849. He was ordained in the latter year, and, as curate of St. Paul's Church, Knightsbridge, served the parish of St. Barnabas Pimlico, until 1851. Ouseley's works, which are little known today, include two oratorios, a great number of services and anthems, cantatas, chamber music, organ pieces and songs.
