St Martin’s Voices and Will Todd Ensemble share an uplifting selection of sacred and secular works, blending choral beauty with jazz vibrancy. Highlights include the Stabat Mater from Todd’s Passion Music, which premiered at St Martin’s in 2018, and the heart-warming Like a rainbow shining, written in support of NHS and keyworkers during the challenging early months of the pandemic.
Antonio Vivaldi’s joyous Gloria was famously composed for the musicians of the Ospedale della Pietà orphanage in Venice. Similarly, the Baroque composers Porpora and Hasse were also high-profile teachers who wrote choral works for their Ospedale pupils in Naples and Venice, combining social enterprise and musical excellence in a way that resonates powerfully with the ethos of St Martin's.
