St Mary Magdalene, Norwich.

Organist needed for St Mary Magdalene, Silver Road, Norwich.

This is a building of 1902 with a two-manual Thomas S Jones & Son (Marlborough Organ Works, Finsbury Park) instrument contemporary with the building.
One Sunday service at 9:30 am; the worship is of a clear modern Liberal Catholic ethos, Sung Eucharist (CW modern language) every Sunday morning, with vestments and incense. Holy Week is particularly full and well attended, including a complete Paschal Vigil beginning before sunrise on Easter morning.

Two settings in use, one in Advent and Lent, the other at other times; both simple and direct, eminently singable, and by a previous organist. Five hymns at each Eucharist, chosen by members of the small music group on a monthly rota and agreed in consultation with the priest-in-charge. Hymns usually from Ancient & Modern ‘Hymns and Songs for Refreshing Worship’ and occasionally from Mission Praise.

The group sings a Communion anthem or similar on special occasions, and these are normally accompanied on a Clavinova. There are very few church weddings or funerals.

Remuneration currently £35 per service which might be negotiable.

Closing date: Wednesday 1 March 2023
