Justadad Posted June 21, 2013 Share Posted June 21, 2013 It seems to be common, if not compulsory, that Choir Masters and Directors of Music retain the title of Organist, while their organists have to make do with being Assistant Organists. Why is that? When a brilliant Production Director is promoted to Managing Director they don't cling to their former title and oblige the new Production Director to be called Assistant Production Director. I assume, therefore, that there is some profoundly important reason why Conductors are called Organists and Organists are called Assistant (or, worse, Sub) Organists, of which I am ignorant. I expect enlightenment will be swift (and hope it will not be too painful). Best wishes J Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
