On the departure of our current Director of Music, Mr Martin Seymour, to the post of Director of Music at Romsey Abbey, Hampshire, we invite applications for the post of Director of Music at All Saints’ Church in Marlow, Buckinghamshire. The position will be vacant from 1 July, but we will keep it open for the right candidate as necessary.

All Saints’ Church, Marlow, has had a long choral tradition and is one of only about 60 parish churches left in the UK still to maintain a boys’ choir together with junior and senior girls’ choirs, alongside a men’s choir and a mixed adult choir. There are also several flourishing contemporary worship bands.

The ‘traditional’ choirs sing at two services on Sundays and at other special services. Prominent among these are the Good Friday and Easter Services, and the Christmastide services including large Advent, Nine Lessons and Carols, and Epiphany Carol Services. Services and concerts in other churches and buildings, both in this country and abroad (we have a choir tour abroad every other year), are looked forward to and enjoyed by the choristers.

We strive to offer the best of different types of liturgy including parish congregational and choral eucharists (including Haydn and Mozart Masses alongside settings by more modern composers such as Anthony Caesar), choral evensongs, BCP evensongs, and other liturgies including Compline during Lent.
