Organist - Ss. Simon and Jude Cathedral, Phoenix
  • Ss. Simon and Jude Roman Catholic Cathedral in Phoenix is seeking a part-time organist. The position will work under the Director of Sacred Music. Responsibilities include 2-3 weekend liturgies, serving as organist for occasional Diocesan Episcopal liturgies, and availability for occasional weddings and funerals is preferred.

    The Cathedral is developing a program of sacred music under new director Adam Bartlett (composer and editor of Simple English Propers [CMAA 2011], and the Lumen Christi Missal [Illuminare Publications 2012]) that is built upon Gregorian chant and Renaissance choral polyphony, among other repertoires that are consonant with these ideal forms. The Cathedral Choir and Schola Cantorum consist of eight professional singers among other volunteers, and the Sunday High Mass has had the practice of singing Gregorian chant propers for over the past five years. The weekly 9:00AM Mass is televised and reaches 60,000 homes plus internet broadcast.

    The Cathedral parish serves as the musical and liturgical model for Catholic parishes throughout the Diocese, and has the visibility to be a national and international model of sacred music. The coming year will include a further development of implementing the sacred music ideals of Catholic teaching and tradition which place early music (Gregorian chant and sacred polyphony) as musical ideals that should have an eminent place in the liturgy today. Bishop Olmsted, Bishop of Phoenix, has recently published a 4-part series on sacred music that has received national and international acclaim. Ss. Simon and Jude Cathedral is poised to implement this vision for sacred music as a model that has the possibility of strongly influencing the practice of Catholic sacred music in the United States and beyond.
