I have noted from the St Paul's Cathedral website that Tim Harper, (Organ Scholar) has been appointed Assistant to the Director of Music at St Philip's Cathedral, Birmingham. There is a young chap - ex-Organ Scholar of St John's, Cambridge - also due to take up the Assistant post at Chichester next month to take over from Simon Lawford who has been holding the fort.

We do have Area Deans in the Roman Catholic church - look in your Diocesan Directory! - though quite what they do in either the Church of England or the Roman Church is beyond me!

My comment, wondering what an Area Dean does, was made as someone who has spent a considerable time as a member of the Church of England - and also of the Roman Catholic Church - and, to most laity as well as clergy and the hierarchry the role of an Area dean is, as the lady said 'what you make it'.

 

Some do very little - others do too much - others do very little and too much - some even do too much and very little!!!

 

You work it out!!!!

Incidentally...his parents are both FRCOs - Father (Norman) is at St George's Cathedral and a superb player, Southwark and Mother (Marilyn) a well known organist/teacher in South London.
