At St Martin-in-the-Fields, we are proud of the voluntary choirs that are nurtured within our walls. Our Sunday liturgical music making is led by our Choir. St Martin’s Chamber Choir perform at many of our choral concerts. Our Community Choir aims to advance the culture of enthusiastic participatory congregational music. And our Children’s Voices provides invaluable training for singers aged 7-13.

Ensembles

The Choir of St Martin-in-the-Fields, our principal voluntary liturgical choir, joins with clergy and laity in leading our worship on Sundays and at significant festivals in the church year including Christmas, Holy Week and Easter. It strives to be amongst the leading voluntary church choirs in the UK, performing a wide range of sacred choral repertoire on a regular basis to a high standard. As well as its busy programme of church services, the Choir gives occasional concerts at St Martin’s and in recent years has toured to Paris and South Africa, as well as visiting UK cathedrals including Liverpool and Canterbury.

St Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Choir is our voluntary concert choir of around 25 singers, who perform a wide range of repertoire in concert at St Martin-in-the-Fields and beyond. Recent performances include Mendelssohn Elijah, Brahms Requiem, Rachmaninov Vespers and Copland In the Beginning and the première of Will Todd’s Passion Music. St Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Choir is currently auditioning singers across all voice parts. For details of how to apply, see below.

The Children’s Voices of St Martin-in-the-Fields was formed in 2014 and has quickly become an integral part of the St Martin’s musical community. This choir of 7-13 year-olds has joined our existing ensembles to regularly enhance our music-making at church services and concerts whilst providing invaluable musical training for its young singers.

Our Community Choir aims to advance the culture of enthusiastic participatory congregational music at St Martin’s, worshipping and gaining enjoyment in a pressure-free environment. Drawn from the St Martin’s community and beyond, the Community Choir sing two or three services a term, plus occasional choral workshops and other activities.
