The Choir of St Martin-in-the-Fields is a group of expert singers which performs at the Parish Eucharist and Choral Evensong each Sunday at the famed church in Trafalgar Square in London. There is a strong tradition of music making at the church, and Haydn, Mozart, and Mendelssohn have all played on the church’s organ. As part of their U.S. tour, the choir, under the direction of Dr. Andrew Earis, presents a diverse program of sacred music juxtaposed with secular music and traditional spirituals. The concert of music inspired by the British Isles including Shakespeare and monarchs of Great Britain features works by Henry Purcell, William Byrd, Ralph Vaughn Williams, George Shearing, Moses Hogan and more.
