Rosemary Field

Rosemary was born in 1957 and studied at the Royal School of Music, taking Organ as first study with Nicholas Danby and Piano with Hubert Hawkes, then with Angus Morrison.  She won the main RCM prizes for organ, harmony and fugue, later being awarded the Tournemire medal for improvisation at the St Albans Festival.  

Rosemary has spent her life in church music as organist, choir-trainer, composer and teacher, pioneering diocesan training outreach from the Cathedrals of Birmingham and Portsmouth, where she was Assistant Organist.

Rosemary was Deputy Director of the RSCM for 7 years before a brief spell as Head of Organ Studies.  Redundancy caused her to return to her house here in Lincolnshire to rebuild  life and an income.

Currently, Rosemary is organist at Worksop Priory and enjoys playing for Leicester Philharmonic Choir; she also accompanies choirs of grantahm, Louth and Sleaford parish churches on occasion.

Concerts feature frequently in her schedule now and Rosemary has launched a lunchtime series at Worksop in the warmer months. She is due to open the Selby Abbey series on June 4th 2024, having had to miss 2023 bookings due to Covid.  Other interests are gardens, needlework, visual arts and aircraft watching - facilitated by being under RAF skies once more.
