Paul Carr Posted August 24, 2010 Share Posted August 24, 2010 Has anyone else seen this article from Sunday's Telegraph? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics...ng-couples.html At least the RSCM have responded and put a few things straight... http://www.rscm.com/info_resources/wedding.php ...it's just such a complete distortion of a joint press release issued by the C of E and the RSCM, which is also available at the 2nd link above. I do think that this part of the RSCM response is to the point: "An additional point in the article concerned the question of an organist taking a fee even if a friend of the wedding couple wished to play for the service. Again, it comes down to the organist’s individual contract but one would hardly expect a couple to approach the hotel where the reception is taking place and ask for their friend who happens to be an expert chef to replace the regular salaried member of staff!" It seems sad that of all the things for a wedding which have to be paid for it's organists who get picked on! Collective scream? P Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
