Director of Music welcomed as President of the Northampton & District Organists' Association

St Matthew's Director of Music, Stephen Moore, was welcomed as President of the Northampton and District Organists' Association at their AGM on Saturday 10 November. At the meeting, which was held in
St Matthew's Parish Centre, Honorary Secretary, Roger Smith, reported the following:


"We meet today at St. Matthew’s, and for those of us old enough to recall its illustrious Directors of Music of yesteryear, it is uplifting to be back and see the church resuming its significance within the NDOA once again. With its current Director of Music, Stephen Moore, poised to become our next President (the first from St. Matthew’s since Andrew Shenton wore the mantle 24 years ago), it is with great anticipation that we look forward to a renaissance with a church which has played such an important part in the musical culture of the town over so many years and gave the NDOA its first President, Charles King."


Stephen was presented with the president's medal and becomes the first St Matthew's Director of Music to hold the presidency since Andrew Shenton in 1988! St Matthew's will be playing host to quite a few NDOA events over the next 12 months and so it was encouraging to see members of the association and of St Matthew's congregation come together at a service which followed the AGM.

Stephen will keep you updated on these events as and when they occur.
