Looking for a skilled pianist who can play Midnight Mass (we have no organ but do have both a grand piano and also a clavinova that can do "organ effects").
It will be traditional Christmas Carols. Even the mass setting is likely to be carols (eg Ding Dong Merrily on high in place of Gloria)
Ie - it is a pretty easy gig - but it is of course at an inconvenient time, and because of the specialness of the service it is important it is done well.
Our normal pianist has unfortunately reached the age where she feels she can no longer do both Midnight Mass and Christmas morning and has decided to focus on the latter
