We are looking for a skilled and enthusiastic person to work alongside the vicar and others in leading worship at Selby Abbey through providing music, directing the choir and encouraging congregational singing. They will also take a leading role in developing and promoting the wider musical life of the Abbey and its role within the town of Selby (12m south of York).

Traditional choral services are at the heart of our worship. We currently have a mixed, voluntary SATB adult and junior robed choir (RSCM) who provide music to a high parish church standard. The four-manual Hill organ has been recently restored and is renowned worldwide for the Germani recordings with EMI in the 1960s.
