Worcester

 

Although the appointment of George Castle as Assistant DoM at Winchester was noted some time ago, as far as I can see I don’t think this interesting thread has ever announced that his replacement as Sub-Assistant Organist at Worcester Cathedral is James Luxton, who takes up his duties on September 3rd. Supporters of organ and church music in Worcester wish George every success at Winchester and welcome James to Worcester.

This strictly speaking is not an appointment either... However the matter has been discussed in these parts before now and to cut to the chase its good news!

The Archbishop of Canterbury has today conferred Lambeth Degrees on (amongst others):

Dr Francis Jackson and Dr Martin Neary

A cause for rejoicing...

Croydon Minster (or Croydon parish Church for many of us) has announced that Ronny Kripner from St George's Hanover Square is to be the new DOM.

An inspired appointment of a very talented musician. Congratulations Ronny & Croydon!

Its been announced locally that Steven Bullamore (Waltham Abbey) is off to St Mary-Le-Tower Ipswich to be replaced by Jonathan Lilley. Other major PC news to follow....

I note that the post of Director of Music at Shrewsbury Abbey is advertised - again. Am I correct in thinking that a contributor to this forum (Contrabombarde) is currently the Organist at the abbey (as opposed to Director of Music) ? I wonder if anyone has any further information about this appointment, including who has left and where they are going - if it is possible to give this information at present, please.

 

Thank you.

The current Director of Music is Tom Edwards - I believe he's giving up the job as he plans to emigrate. There have been recent plans to restore and complete the organ - not before time! It would seem that very few music directors has stayed there for a considerable time in recent years.
