FCM grant to the Choral Scholarship Fund



Friends of Cathedral Music recently made a grant of £20,000 to the Choral Scholarship Fund as an endowment.  Roger Bishton, FCM Secretary, will present this at the 11am Eucharist sung by Schola Cantorum on Sunday 17 November.  All are very welcome to join us at this service.

CSF is very grateful to FCM for this grant and to its Gloucester Diocesan Branch of FCM, of which The Abbey’s Mrs Pat Horsley is Diocesan representative, for their continued support.

FCM contributed significantly towards the costs of setting up Schola Cantorum in 2006 and has generously supported the choir and individual choristers since then, giving each chorister a scholarship of 25% towards their education together at Dean Close Preparatory School, the choir school for the boys.

DCPS is a member of the Choir Schools Association. The school bears a considerable part of the costs of maintaining Schola Cantorum and provides the educational environment in which the boys and the choir prosper.
