from Peter Davieswho needs cover for a Sunday morning service on 17th September in Market Deeping.
"The commitment is for full choral Eucharist plus anthem (yet to be chosen and could be negotiated). The service is at 10am but with a 9.30 choir practice. The service itself usually lasts barely over an hour. We have a committed SATB (up to) 24 strong choir and a smallish two manual Hill which is a little heavy but otherwise in reasonable working order (apart from the Swell Super Oct. and the odd note here and there!); Oh, and the Gt. Trumpet is best avoided. A rebuild is planned!"
Please call Peter Davies directly if you can help 07779 780021
Stephen Barber, one of our members, has won the Orgelbuchlein Project Prize given by the Trustees of the Royal College of Organists, for his organ prelude on the chorale Es spricht.
