St Martin’s Voices is a professional vocal ensemble, primarily made up of talented past and present choral scholars who come together to sing world-class concerts and special services at St Martin-in-the-Fields in London and beyond. Recent concert highlights have included Bach’s Motets and St John Passion, Handel’s Messiah and Fauré’s Requiem. St Martin’s Voices have recorded Christmas in Blue, a CD of jazz carols arranged by celebrated composer Will Todd, and are regularly broadcast on the BBC, including Radio 3 Choral Evensong, Radio 4 Daily Service and Sunday Worship. In May 2015, they were privileged to perform at the Cenotaph for the 70thanniversary of VE day, and this was followed by singing live on BBC1 for the VJ day commemorations in August 2015, in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen. They recently toured the East Coast of the USA, singing in New York and Washington DC, and will return to the United States in September where they will perform in Nashville Tennessee and Dallas, Houston and Austin, Texas.
