Ord, Bernhard (known as Boris) (b Clifton, Bristol, 9 July, 1897 - d Cambridge, 1961)
Ord was educated at Clifton College until 1914, passing his ARCO in 1913, when he elected to an organ scholarship at the Royal College of Music. His studies were interrupted by war service as Lieutenant, and only completed on his return (1919 - 1920). Following the RCM, he was to Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, as an organ scholar, and while he was there the distinction of his work gained him a Fellowship of King's College in 1923. He took an important part in the revival of old music at Cambridge, notably through several stage performances of Handel's oratorios, and the Cambridge University Madrigal Society.

His appointment as organist of King's College in 1927 (where he succeeded A H Mann) led to his further involvement in the musical life of the University. He was made organist to the University in the same year, and lecturer in music in 1936. In 1937 he succeeded Rootham as the conductor of the Cambridge University Music Society. Despite all the other calls on his time, his interest in church music never failed: the choir of King's College maintained its high reputation, and the repertory was widened to include much Tudor polyphony. In 1936 he was enabled by the British Council to take the Chapel Choir to Scandinavia where the office of Evensong was sung in several Swedish churches as an example of the English style and use. He was awarded a CBE in 1958.
