Job Description

DIRECTOR OF MUSIC/ORGANIST

Autumn 2018

 

With the imminent retirement of the Director of Music, we seek a gifted and collaborative musician to join our ministry team. We wish to enhance our strong choral tradition, maintaining our extensive repertoire and exploring new music and styles of worship.

 

Our robed choir of 30 adults and children, strong in all four parts and affiliated to the RSCM, is recognized as one of the best in the South West. A bursary fund supports the musical education of the choir, especially younger members. Choristers regularly attend RSCM courses and work towards awards. The organ is a resourceful 3 manual instrument, suitable for teaching.

 

The musical life of the parish includes Sunday services (Choral Eucharist on 3/4 Sundays each month, Choral Evensong once a month) special services, Mission Community services, concerts, and weekly choir practices (currently Friday evenings), There are about ten weddings and twenty-five funerals each year. Remuneration for this post will be negotiable. The current post-holder has supplemented these responsibilities with school based and private instrumental teaching. A supportive community of local church musicians offers the opportunity for flexibility within this post and for mutual support. There may be the possibility of economical short-term accommodation for the successful candidate.
