Applications are encouraged for the post of Organist at Holy Trinity, Kentish Town. This will
be an opportunity to work at a high level in a relaxed and happy environment, and would
suit someone keen to improve their skills as a liturgical organist, improviser, accompanist,
and choral director.
Holy Trinity is a parish church with a strong Catholic tradition, and music is greatly valued by
clergy and congregation. The Organist’s primary role will be to play for Mass on a Sunday
morning, working with the friendly and enthusiastic voluntary choir. At present, they sing at
two masses per month (leading the congregational mass and simple plainchant propers, and
also singing two motets), but it is hoped that the successful applicant will grow and expand
on this. It would be ideal if they were able to lead one mid-week rehearsal.
Salary and other details
The post is worth £5,534 pa, paid in monthly instalments. The Organist will be entitled to six
Sundays off annually: it is possible that the Director of Music at S. Silas will be able to cover
some or all of these. There will an initial probation period of three months.
In addition to the historically significant Bevington organ in Holy Trinity, the Organist will
also have access to the newly installed Hauptwerk organ at S. Silas for practice and teaching
(by arrangement with the Parish Priest). There will also be the opportunity to play for school
masses for the parish school, which attract a separate fee.
For more information, and to apply, please contact the Director of Music at S. Silas, Mr
Peter Dutton: email@example.com
The closing date for applications is 1 st March and interviews will be held on Monday 13 th
