Guest Lee Blick Posted April 20, 2006 Share Posted April 20, 2006 The Assignment Within 5 years to develop musical activities to support the liturgy and the parish community. The Church: A medium-sized building built in the late 1800's. Church of England, liberal Catholic tradition. Sunday mass attendance 70-80 consisting mainly of elderly folk but more recently some young families have become involved. Leaky roof needing £150,000 to repair. Full time priest (being reviewed). There is no history of a choir or music group at the church. Although you will be paid for playing for services, you will be required to seek funding/raise money to pay for other activities. The hymn book used is the old English Hymnal and Dom Gregory Murray as the mass setting. The Parish: A poor London inner-city area. Large ethnic population. Infant and secondary school in parish. Brownies, Beavers and Scouts use the church hall. What you are required to do: Improve congregational music and singing Develop a music group/choir/cantors to enrich the liturgy Raise funds to recondition the organ or provide a new pipe or digital intrument Ensure music and musical activities are inclusive making use of the resources within the church and the local parish area. There is no money to engage a professional group! How would you do it? What would your priorities be? How would you engage the local community?
