During lockdown, in May 2020, Zoom Church was introduced to the Hambleden Valley and we soon discovered the Voices St Martin-in the-Fields who wonderfully provided us (and the rest of the nation) with hymns each week. We continue to download these hymns on Zoom each Sunday. I'm delighted to say that we now have the opportunity to see and hear the Voices in one of our own churches as the St Martinís Voices are coming to Hambleden to give a concert on Saturday 30th October 2021 at 7.00pm. Do come along to what promises to be a delightful evening! The proceeds of the concert will be shared between our own churches and St Martinís. Please see below for ordering tickets and for details of the concert; some paper tickets will also be available soon. Posters and flyers to follow.

St Martinís Voices in Concert
from St Martin-in-the-Fields, London
St Mary the Virgin, Hambleden
Saturday 30th October 2021 at 7.00pm

Tickets from £10 adults / £5 under 16s

The Concert
The night before lockdown in March 2020, members of St Martinís Voices gathered in a dimly lit St Martin-in-the-Fields for one final time to record the music for a service led by the Archbishop of Canterbury, broadcast to the nation on the BBC.
The service opened with the hymn ĎLord of all hopefulnessí.
This hour-long concert reflects on themes of love, hope, joy and peace drawn from this much-loved hymn, and includes music drawn from over four centuries of choral masterpieces, including works by Thomas Tallis, Hubert Parry, John Stainer, Amy Beach, Ola Gjeilo and James MacMillan.
St Martinís Voices is one of Londonís most versatile professional vocal ensembles, resident at St Martin-in-the-Fields. They sing for concerts, broadcasts and special services at St Martinís and beyond, perform alongside the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, London Mozart Players, Southbank Sinfonia and Will Todd Ensemble, and have toured to the USA and South Africa. They regularly feature in BBC broadcasts including Radio 3 Choral Evensong and Radio 4 Sunday Worship. In response to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, St Martinís Voices have extended their digital recording projects, sharing regular online Great Sacred Music and concerts, as well as featuring in the Church of England online worship resources that have attracted more than 1 million downloads across digital platforms.
