The Choir of St Martin-in-the-Fields: Concert of choral favourites

The Choir of St Martin-in-the-Fields performs a concert of choral favourites at St Stephen Walbrook, St Martin’s partner church in the city. Music will include Renaissance masterpieces including Clemens non Papa’s Ego flos campi and Tallis’s O nata lux, Anglican choral standards such as Wood’s Hail, gladdening light and modern anthems and arrangements by living composers, David Bednall, Eric Whitacre and Will Todd. The choir, regular contributors to BBC Radio, is sure to come alive in the fantastic acoustic of Wren’s dome at St Stephen’s.

The Choir of St Martin-in-the-Fields is a group of around 25 dedicated singers from all walks of life, with an excellent reputation for performance of a professional standard. The Choir is well known for its frequent broadcasts on BBC Radio and Television, and took part in Radio 4’s Christmas morning broadcast in December 2010, as well as Radio 2’s Sunday Half Hour 70th anniversary programme and a broadcast of Jazz Choral Evensong on BBC Radio 3.

The Choir has recorded three CDs, ‘Christmas at St Martin-in-the-Fields’ (2009), Evensong in Blue (2010) and a recording, ‘The Art of Worship’, in collaboration with the National Gallery. They toured the USA – Minneapolis, New York, Washington DC and Atlanta – in May 2011, and visited Berlin in summer 2013. In summer 2014, they made another tour to the USA visiting North and South Carolina, Virginia and Washington DC.
