St Mary Merton, a thriving all-age parish in south-west London, seeks to appoint a new Director of Music to continue the development of its excellent robed choir of choristers and adults. The choir sings two choral services (Sung Eucharist and Choral Evensong) each week in term-time, and the music department enjoys very strong support from the PCC and wider congregation, which views music as being at the heart of the parish's worship and community. The volunteer choir includes members of all ages, and the church's highly successful chorister and choral scholarship programme has seen recent leavers win organ and choral scholarships at Oxford, Cambridge and Durham Universities. Further support includes an Assistant Director of Music (to be recruited in partnership with the new DoM), two teenage organ scholars, and a professional chorister vocal tutor; resources in the church include a fine new Mander organ (2 manuals, 2015), a Boston piano, several additional pianos for teaching and practice across the church site, and a very large and well-equipped music library. Salary £11,700 + fees + opportunity for private teaching.
