The Choir of St Martin-in-the-Fields is an outstanding liturgical voluntary choir of 25 singers, rooted in Sunday worship at St Martin’s. In addition, they sing for the worship services at all the major church festivals, including Advent, Christmas, Holy Week and Easter.
The Choir is well known for its broadcasts on BBC Radio and TV recordings, tours and concerts. It has recorded three CDs, Christmas at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Evensong in Blue and a recording, The Art of Worship, in collaboration with the National Gallery. They toured the USA – Minneapolis, New York, Washington DC and Atlanta – in May 2011, and visited Berlin in summer 2013. In summer 2014, they made another tour to the USA visiting North and South Carolina, Virginia and Washington DC. They will tour Paris in May 2016.
“I moved to London from Australia in October 2014. I auditioned and was invited to sing with the choir and from the very first rehearsal I was hooked! I had definitely moved to London searching for something and within two weeks I found this choir and it was exactly what I was looking for. A highlight for me was recently having the chance to perform at the Songs of Praise ‘Big Sing’ in the Royal Albert Hall because as a venue it’s one of the premiere places in the world. You hear about it and all the people who perform there, so being on that same stage is really the pinnacle.” Matt Collins, Member of St Martin’s Choir, December 2015
