Gray, Alan (b York, 23 December, 1855 - d Cambridge, 27 September, 1935)
Gray was educated at St Peter's School, York, and Trinity College, Cambridge. He was initially intended to work in the legal profession, but after studying with Dr E G Monk, he devoted himself entirely to music. He was appointed musical director at Wellington College in 1883, and he held that post until 1892 when he succeeded Stanford as organist of Trinity College, Cambridge, and conductor of the Cambridge University Music Society. Gray resigned his post of CUMS conductor in 1912, and his post as Trinity College organist in 1930. He did much important work as one of the editors of Purcell Society.
