The English organist and composer Ivor Atkins was appointed organist at Ludlow in 1893, moving to Worcester Cathedral four years later and thereafter participating in the organisation of the Three Choirs Festival. He was knighted in 1921.
Atkins collaborated with Elgar on English versions of Bach’s Passions and Brahms’s A German Requiem. His own compositions are chiefly for the liturgy of the Church of England.
