Exploring Mozart’s rousing choral work, the Mass in C minor
Led by Revd Dr Sam Wells
St Martin’s Chorus
Directed by Andrew Earis & Emily Dickens
St Martin’s Chorus is the newest choir at St Martin-in-the-Fields. It is an engaging and aspirational chamber choir, drawing from a pool of around thirty singers, performing both major choral works and more intimate, small-scale works. Recent concerts include Mendelssohn Elijah, Brahms Requiem, Rachmaninov Vespers and Copland In the Beginning.
Andrew Earis is Director of Music at St Martin-in-the-Fields, where he oversees the church music and concert programmes in this busy London church. In addition to his duties at St Martin’s, Andrew is a regular contributor to BBC Radio’s religious output, as a producer of programmes including Sunday Worship, Choral Evensong and Daily Service.
Emily Dickens is an internationally established soprano and conductor. She read music at Trinity College, Cambridge before becoming a full-time member of the critically acclaimed British vocal ensemble VOCES8 with whom she performed in concert and conducted choirs all over the world. Emily is currently the Choral Conducting Fellow at St Martin-in-the-Fields, London where she directs the professional choirs in weekly services and concerts, and Director of the LSO Junior Choir. Emily sings with the OAE, Gabrieli, Tenebrae, The London Choral Sinfonia and La Nuova Musica, and is regularly heard on UK and international radio. In demand as an educator, Emily directs workshops in the UK and abroad (VCM Foundation, The Voices Foundation, NYCGB, The Bach Choir) and delivers teacher training and professional development courses. Her arrangements are published by Edition Peters.
