Assisting Organist (ONE YEAR CONTRACT)
Salary is £11,830 with accommodation, to start in September.
York Minster has a tradition of choral singing that stretches back for more than a millennium. The current choir of choristers, choral scholars and songmen has a high reputation, enhanced by broadcasts, recordings and concerts. York Minster was one of the UK’s first cathedrals to introduce girl choristers. The girls and boys contribute equally to the singing of eight sung services each week, combining forces for major services at Christmas and Easter.
Following the recent appointment of Benjamin Morris as Assistant Director of Music, there is a vacancy for an Assisting Organist to contribute to the mission and ministry of York Minster by maintaining and developing standards of musical excellence in the Minster’s worship. This will be a one year appointment, in order to allow the Minster to review the staffing needs of the Department. Duties include playing at services, assisting in the training of choristers, and administration. During term time, there is an expectation that at least 35 hours a week will be spent on Minster duties; the pattern of services and rehearsals requires regular duties during early mornings, evenings, and at weekends. There is one regular day off each week.
The Choir normally sings on Sundays at 10:00am, 11:30am and 4:00pm; on Tuesdays to Saturdays daily at 5:15pm. During the choir holidays, the Minster is pleased to host many visiting choirs who come to sing services.
