The choir is a vibrant and innovative mixed voice choir of 23, perfoming a traditional 'Cathedral' liturgical repertoire. The choir has commissioned new works by John Tavener, Karl Jenkins, Arvo Part, John Dankworth and Cecilia McDowell.

The Revd Nicholas Holtam (since )
A church probably existed here from about 1222. Henry V111 built a new church in 1542 but the present church was designed by James Gibbs and completed in 1726. Services resumed at St Martins in September after complete redoration, reordered Sanctuary, new side windows, restored and renovated pews and panelling. Throughout the 20th century, St Martins has looked beyond its own doors and played an active role in wider social, humanitarian and international issues.
