Notes
"Toronto jazz-pianist-turned-businessman Arthur Edwin James Fulford allocated funds in 1973 for a charitable trust to develop and enrich sacred music in the Anglican Church of Canada". "Today, Ted's love of sacred music still resonates in the Fulford Trust, which is administered by the Anglican Foundation of Canada. Each year, the trust supports a broad range of musical projects -- from aiding regional music schools and training organists and choirmasters to publishing Canadian church music and subsidizing the travel expenses of choirs. One unique beneficiary is the Victoria-based Bishop's Gospel Choir of British Columbia. The ensemble [founded and directed by Mary Rogers] was born in March 2007 ... It's mission is to bring the gospel to those in need in the community and to support indigenous young people through the First Nations Youth Bursary". "On the opposite coast, the Rev. Chris Hayes serves as administrative director and chaplain of the Choir School of the diocese of Fredericton. Founded in 1958, the New Brunswick school is home to about 60 choristers ages eight to 16, with support from the Fulford Trust, spend a week each summer honing their skills in sacred music". "In Ontario, the trust aids choristers who need assistance to attend the Toronto Diocesan Choir school for Girls, held for two weeks every August at the Trafalgar Girls' School in Whitby, Ont". "In 2009, the Fulford Trust awarded a total of $22,000 to applicants in dioceses across Canada".
