A Passionate Humility

Frederick Oakeley and the Oxford Movement

P Galloway

Frederick Oakeley, who died in 1880, was comparatively eclipsed, partly because of his innate shyness, but he is a principle figure in the second generation of the Oxford Movement. His public reputation centred on a perfectionist love of exquisitely-performed liturgy and music. Newman writing in 1864 of the Oxford Movement said, “The most prominent person in it was a man of elegant genius, of classical mind, of rare talent in literary composition - Mr Oakeley.”
