Following the move of Anthony Baldery to be Director of Music at Heckington Church at the end of February 2019, we are looking for an organist and choir trainer to lead and further develop the music in our parish from 1 March, or as soon as possible thereafter. Our regular robed choir is affiliated to the RSCM and consists of about a dozen regular and enthusiastic adults plus occasional visitors from outside the parish. We enjoy a wide range of church music, with a weekly Parish Eucharist at 11.00 a.m. in churches around the parish, usually sung to a setting, and a full sung Choral Evensong at 6.30 p.m. once a month. There are occasional special services for the major feast days of the church, as well as approximately 8 weddings per year and about a dozen funerals. We have an annual Service of Nine Lessons and Carols at Christmas time and a performance in Holy Week: in recent years this has been Fauré’s Requiem, The Cross of Christ, or Stainer’s Crucifixion. The choir normally rehearses weekly at Folkingham Church for an hour on Thursdays (the time of the rehearsal has varied). The day and time of the rehearsal would be subject to negotiation.
