(Good train and underground links with Central London.)
We have a fine two manual organ, built by William Drake of Buckfastleigh in 2002, and regularly maintained.
The musical life of the parish includes Sunday Masses at 8.30am, 10.30am & 6pm.
The successful applicant will play the organ at the 8.30am & 10.30am Masses and also train both an adult choir and a children’s choir to lead the music at the 10.30am Mass (the two choirs will perform on alternate Sundays).
It is envisaged that the duties of the Organist/DoM will be for 6 hours per week for 46 weeks per year (making a total of 276 hours per year) PLUS an additional 29.5 hours for Christmas/Holy Week/Easter.
So the grand total will be 305.5 hours per year. Remuneration negotiable -subject to qualifications & experience, based on RSCM rates.
In addition there are about ten weddings and fifteen funerals each year: additional fees for these will be payable. If an applicant is unable to commit him/herself to play at weddings or funerals, this will not be a problem.
