St Martin’s Voices is our flagship professional ensemble of talented singers who come together to sing world-class concerts and special services at St Martin-in-the-Fields and beyond. As well as their extensive concert and broadcasting programme, St Martin’s Voices explore the great classical music of our religious heritage at Great Sacred Music, a free event every Thursday at 1pm. The newest development to the music programme at St Martin-in-the-Fields is the St Martin’s Voices Fellowship, an advanced training programme for emerging professional singers.

Andrew Earis is Director of Music at St Martin-in-the-Fields where he oversees the music programme at this busy London church. Recent performances include Mozart’s Mass in C Minor with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Beethoven Mass in C with Southbank Sinfonia.

The varied range of activities undertaken by the orchestra include a major concert series at St Martin-in-the- Fields and a major Classical Music cruise on the QE2.
