Music Post at St Mary the Virgin, Higham Ferrers

St Mary the Virgin, Higham Ferrers is looking to enhance and develop its music provision – building on our long-standing fine choral and music tradition. We are exploring new and creative ways to enrich our worship, as well as engaging more fully with our community.

We are inviting enquiries and expressions of interest from church musicians with previous experience as an organist, choir director or musician to explore a possible post as Director of Music, or Assistant Organist, at this exciting time of new possibilities. This is an unique opportunity to be involved at the beginning of shaping both this post and the potential development of music and liturgy within the church. RSCM professional rates are offered on a range from £3,500 to £6,500 (depending on the nature of the post appointed to and previous experience).

For further information or an informal chat, please contact Revd Michelle Dalliston on 01733 569147 or 07961 003352, or email michelleacd@hotmail.co.uk.

The details of the job description will be agreed in discussion with the successful candidate.

We can offer:

  • A small but committed and experienced choir of adults and a small junior choir

  • A fantastic church setting – St Mary the Virgin Higham Ferrers is a 13th Century, Grade 1 listed building in an unique setting with three other Grade 1 listed buildings/monuments: The Bede House, Chantry Chapel (both 15th Century) and nearby Medieval Churchyard Cross

  • An excellent modern hybrid organ, built by trailblazing organ-builder Peter Collins, and installed in 2009 (see the NPOR entry for full specification – https://www.npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=E01660)

  • Supportive and enthusiastic colleagues committed to developing the musical life of St Mary’s.

We are looking for:

  • An excellent musician with some experience of church music and choirs to grow and develop the musical life of our church and community

  • Someone with creative flair and a willingness to experiment, as well as an understanding of church tradition

  • Good interpersonal skills and proven organisational ability.
