Keeping you safe
As we welcome you back to St Martin’s following the COVID-19 outbreak, please rest assured that your safety and that of our performers and staff is our top priority. We have outlined below the key changes that we have made.
- Booking is currently only available online. There will be no printed material – tickets, programmes or programme notes.
- Current regulations require socially-distanced seating of 2 metres between each “bubble” of seats.
- In due course, if social-distancing regulations are eased, further seats will be released for sale.
- When booking tickets, the seating plan shows all available socially-distanced “bubbles” of seats. It is not possible for you to book an individual seat in any groups larger than one; all seats in these bubbles must be purchased.
- Current regulations require audience members to wear face-coverings (unless they are exempt as per the Government’s guidelines).
- There will be regular and thorough cleaning of the Church.
- Hand sanitiser will be provided for you at key locations.
- No cushions for hire.
- We will provide clear signage and our helpful staff will make your visit as comfortable and as safe as possible.
- There will be no cushions for hire.
These guidelines may be subject to change in line with government guidance. St. Martin-in-the-Fields is following this guidance closely and all concerts will adhere accordingly to the latest advice.

When Johannes Brahms’ exquisitely moving Ein deutsches Requiem premiered in Bremen Cathedral in 1868, it was complemented by a performance of the beloved Handel aria I know that my redeemer liveth. Inspired by this historic musical pairing, Cecilia McDowall’s unaccompanied choral setting reinterprets the familiar Messiah text, emphasising the themes of tenderness, solace and resilience it shares with Brahms’ masterpiece.
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
St Martin’s Voices and Will Todd Ensemble share an uplifting selection of sacred and secular works, blending choral beauty with jazz vibrancy.
