The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin Monken Hadley in North London has a strong musical tradition with an enthusiastic and committed, robed, RSCM affiliated SATB choir of both adults and children. We use a broad range of hymns and songs from Ancient & Modern (2013), mostly accompanied on a Forster and Andrews organ (restored 1999) although a Welmar piano (purchased 2016) is also available. We have Anglican chant psalms and choir anthems most Sundays.
The key components of this post are:
playing the organ at Monken Hadley church for main services on Sundays and Holy Days
training and directing our choir (Friday evenings and Sunday mornings)
A few recordings of our choir during lockdown are available at https://www.monkenhadley.church/groups/church-music
We are keen to encourage our young choristers and to recruit more children. We are therefore looking for someone who can work well with both adults and children. Enhanced DBS disclosure will be required.
Remuneration follows invoice for services rendered, usually £85 a week. Our organist also has the right to fees for weddings and funerals at which they play.
We are seeking someone who is available from September 2021 or earlier. For an informal conversation, please contact the Revd Dr Thomas Renz at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 020 8449 9441.
Applications, including a full CV and the names and contact details of two referees, to be sent either to email@example.com or to The Rectory, Hadley Common, Monken Hadley, EN5 5QD.
