Charles Frederick South (1850–1916) was a cathedral organist, who served at Salisbury Cathedral.[1]


Charles Frederick South was born on 6 February 1850 in London.

He received the support of John Stainer who wrote:[2]

"I hear on all sides of the beauty of your musical services, Mr. South seems not only to have raised them to a high standard but to have maintained them at this level. If I am correctly informed about this, do you not think it would be a nice compliment to him if you were to obtain for him the degree of Mus.Doc. from the Archbishop?"
