Appointments 2

Recommended Posts

St Peter and St Pauls Lavenham have just said farewell to their organist - the organ there started life as a three manual Father Willis transplanted from another church, with a fourth manual Solo apparently coming from the remains of a one manual local instrument.

Apologies to our hosts if this is considered not appropriate for this board but after reading the Lavenham story in the linked article I tried to Google "Organist dismissal Muswell Hill Bate" [without the quote marks] and got no relevant hits. I thought legal precedents had been set in that earlier case.

Am I right in thinking there has been a recent change of musical management at St John's RC Cathedral in Norwich?

I haven't seen an ad for the DoM job at Exeter which will be available in September I believe. Has an appointment been made?

It has just appeared on the Exeter Cathedral website.

I was at Evensong there yesterday. The chap sitting just behind me was wearing a badge that said "Tim Noon".

George Richford to Romsey Abbey

Robert Fielding (who was my organ teacher when I started out) spent quite a few years there and I didn't realise he had gone. Has he retired, or simply gone elsewhere? And when did he finish?

As far as I know, he is still in-post, until the end of term. I believe that he is moving into property developing. (He has also run a wedding car hire firm for a number of years.)

 

George Richford was formerly Director of Music at Saint Mary's, Newark, Notts.

Dr. Stephen Tympany has been appointed Organist & Master of the Choristers at Armagh Cathedral (CofI), in succession to Theo Saunders. Stephen has been covering for some time while Theo was on sick leave. He has been a leading light in church music in Northern Ireland for many years and was for a long time in charge of the music at Banbridge Parish Church. This sounds to me to be a very good appointment.
