It has been announced today that Miss Francesca Massey is to assume the post of Sub Organist at Durham Cathedral from September the 1st. She is currently Assistant Organist at Peterborough Cathedral.
Keith Wright, the Sub Organist since 1991, is moving to York to be Assistant Director of Music & Head of Keyboard at St Peter's School and Director of Music at St Olave's Church in the city centre. Oliver Brett, currently Assistant Organist, is moving to St Mary's Cathedral, Sydney, Australia. Thus far there is no news on the status of the 'Assistant' position.
James Lancelot continues strong in post as Organist & Master of the Choristers, a position he has held since 1985. He has seen out a number of assistants and clergy alike by now, it would seem!
All good wishes,
