St Martin’s Voices is formed of past and present choral scholars who come together to sing at special events and services at St Martin-in-the-Fields. Every year ten choral scholars – many of whom are music college students or graduates – are appointed to sing Choral Eucharist and Evensong every Wednesday during term time. They also gain concert experience, and benefit from an extensive programme of training in different aspects of church and choral music.
In December 2013, St Martin’s Voices performed the World Première of The Lantern Carols by Sasha Johnson Manning and Sharon Grenham-Toze. In January 2014, they performed Annelies: A Choral Setting of the Diary of Anne Frank by James Whitbourn for Holocaust Memorial Day.

Andrew Earis is Director of Music at St Martin-in-the-Fields, where he oversees the church music and concert programmes. He is a graduate of the Royal College of Music and Imperial College, London, and holds a PhD from the University of Manchester. In addition to his duties at St Martin’s, Andrew is a regular contributor to BBC Radio and Television’s religious output, as a music advisor, conductor and organist to programmes including Radio 4 Sunday Worship and Daily Service and BBC1 Songs of Praise. He is also Director of Music of St Sepulchre-without-Newgate, the National Musicians’ Church in the City of London. Andrew is an Associate of the Royal College of Organists and Fellow of Trinity College, London. Andrew has given organ recitals in venues including King’s College Chapel, Cambridge, Westminster Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and Washington National Cathedral, and has performed as soloist in performance of Poulenc’s Organ Concerto and Saint-Saens’ Organ Symphony.

This performance is approximately one hour long without interval.
