S Alban's Church,
We are a thriving and vibrant CofE church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, under the episcopal care of the Bishop of Richborough.
Our previous organist died unexpectedly prematurely very recently.
The Mass setting is to the new Dom Gregory Murray Roman rite.
The organ is a two-manual Willis (1914), which is well-maintained; a new blower was installed earlier this year.
We have a small singing group, which robes at Christmas and Easter. We also have a St Alban's Singing Group, which gathers singers from across the Deanery, but which operates semi-independently. Involvement with that group can be discussed.
The responsibility would require the choice of hymnody, the organisation of the Psalm cantors and provision of cover for any absences/holidays. Availability for Christmas and the Easter Triduum is essential.
We have a team of regular covering organists who will be supporting us in the coming months; and who would be happy to be available to provide cover after the appointment.
The appointment would be subject to DBS clearance. We would hope to appoint a new organist as soon as possible, whilst honouring any arrangements that might have been made.
S Alban's is a famously welcoming church and we would love to welcome our new organist into our happy family!
