Performers

St Martin’s Chorus is an engaging and aspirational chamber choir, drawing from a pool of 30 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 and the première of Will Todd’s Passion Music.

The Brandenburg Sinfonia is one of the most dynamically versatile musical organisations in the country. In recent years the orchestra has performed in the majority of the major venues across the country, and in London. Future tours include: France, Germany, USA, Japan and Hong Kong.

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. He is a graduate of the Royal College of Music and Imperial College, London, and holds a PhD from the University of Manchester. 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 Radio 4 Sunday Worship and Radio 3 Choral Evensong.
