ORGANIST-BASE
A database of organists around Oxfordshire
Below is an alphabetical list of names and contact details for organists who may be called upon to help out with services, weddings and funerals. The list is mainly aimed at organists in the area, clergy and funeral directors as a growing resource to locate help when the normal organist is unavailable.

The list is not intended to convey individual skills, but to help locate alternative organists. If fees are charged, then these are negotiated separately and out of the remit of this resource.
