Welcome to St Martin’s

Monday 19 September – Sunday 2 October Pen to Paper by Venetia Norris Private View 20 September, 6.00-8.00pm

The Revd Nicholas Holtam, Vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields since 1995, has been appointed Bishop of Salisbury. For sixteen inspirational years Nicholas Holtam has led St Martin-in-the-Fields through significant progress and change. His vision, wisdom, skills and commitment have helped make St Martin’s what it is today, a thriving parish church at the heart of London, equipped through a £36m renewal project for the 21st century and beyond, open to all, caring for the vulnerable, with a welcome and inclusive hospitality inspired by the spirit of radical generosity at the heart of the Gospel. Nicholas Holtam will be leaving a fabulous legacy for the future – over 700,000 visitors a year, a well tuned business that supports the church and an Annual Christmas Appeal for those who are homeless and at risk that reached £1.5m this last year – and at its heart, a community that is rooted in prayer, worship and loving service inspired by his kind, wise and prayerful gifts.

This exhibition features a wide spectrum of the arts, including watercolour and oil painting, sculpture and photography. The Group has a close relationship with the world famous insurance market and raises funds for the Coombe Trust, a children’s charity. www.lloydsartgroup.co.uk Contemporary Lithuanian artist Arvydas Uziela presents his artistic journey towards liberating fantasy and expression. The artist draws on past and present memories of the three thrilling cities where he has lived and worked – Vilnius, Budapest and London. www.uziela-art.eu

Monday 15 – Sunday 21 August 2011 Orchestral Arts @ the Crypt London based abstract artist Nicola Wills explores the visual interpretation of sound through vibrant, expressive use of colour and line forms. www.nicolawillsart.com

Venetia creates mixed media drawings by layering marks onto a surface through varying the pressure, direction, amount of ink, speed, movement and paper. Her love of the natural world and keen observation acts as the foundation for her artwork. www.venetianorris.com Monday 3 – Sunday 16 October Precious Little New painting by Sarah Knill-Jones, Jim Threapleton, Ingolv Helland and Kimathi Donkor. These four artists first met on the inaugural 2009 Fine Art Masters degree at Camberwell College of Arts. Radically different in its appearance, their practice shares compelling underlying concerns. With some hard-won respect for paint’s particular facility to saturate surface with meaning, they each manifest a rigorous approach to process.

The Elysian Singers

The Elysian Singers and the Craswall Consort return to St Martin’s with a programme of Viennese masterpieces. The first half of the concert consists of Mozart’s sublime Serenade for 13 wind instruments, the ‘Gran Partita’ (1781), whose music so ravished the senses of Salieri in the film Amadeus that he described it as “the voice of God”. The players are then joined by the Elysian Singers for Anton Bruckner’s Mass in E Minor (1866), a resonant affirmation of Catholic faith which mixes bold Romantic harmonies with influences from plainsong and Italian Renaissance polyphony, and makes maximum use of the possible effects and contrasts resulting from the unusual combination of voices and wind instruments. The sound is guaranteed to raise the roof.

Academy of St Martin in the Fields

The Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble gives a summer programme of three highlights from the sextet repertoire. Featuring six of the world-famous chamber orchestra’s most outstanding players, the group will perform Martinü’s Sextet, Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht op 4 and Dvorák’s Sextet in A op 48. Composed in just one week, Martinü’s sextet displays many of the contrasting influences absorbed by the composer in his native Czechoslovakia and then France, Spain, Italy, the US and Switzerland. One of Schoenberg’s most important early works, Verklärte Nacht is inspired by Richard Dehmel’s poem of the same name. Finally, Dvořák’s sextet is an excellent example of the composer’s ability to assimilate traditional Slavonic folk influences into his composition.

Martin Feinstein

Flautist Martin Feinstein has established himself as one of this country’s leading interpreters of Bach’s flute repertoire. Here he teams up with harpsichord virtuoso Robin Bigwood to present an informal concert of baroque masterpieces which will include sonatas by Handel, Telemann and Bach. The central work will be Bach’s great Flute Sonata in B minor. Surpassing even his six beautiful sonatas for violin with obligato harpsichord, this extraordinary instrumental duo, with its astonishing, almost symphonic opening movement, is probably the most important composition in the entire flute repertoire. During the concert the musicians will introduce the works and talk about their instruments. An informal atmosphere is encouraged.

The Bach Choral Masterpieces series returns to St Martin’s this Autumn with performances of some of Bach’s greatest works. The sumptuous acoustic of St Martin’s creates the perfect setting for the Feinstein Ensemble’s acclaimed collaborations with the London Bach Singers. The works range in size from the intimacy of flute and strings in ‘Ich habe genug’ to the magnificence of massed oboes, brass and timpani in ‘Christmas Oratorio’. The first concert on Thursday 22 September features the grandest of all Bach’s cantatas, the great ‘Trauer Ode’. The scoring of this work is wonderfully rich, augmenting the already large orchestra with obligato lutes and violas da gamba. Alongside the ‘Trauer Ode’, the September programme features two more masterpieces, including the much-loved ‘Ich Habe Genug’. Bach Choral Masterpieces series continues on Thursday 27 October and Saturday 26 November.

Café in the Crypt

Shop at St Martin’s

London is the place to be this summer with new exhibitions opening in the Gallery in the Crypt and the other local galleries, the music season and new theatre productions in the West End.

The stage is set for the greatest show on earth as London gears up to celebrate the 2012 Paralympic and Olympic Games.

For Londoners and visitors alike there’s no better escape from the London sights than the Café in the Crypt. It is steeped in beautiful Georgian architecture and designed to keep out the hottest summer rays. The brick, stone and light wood create a relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy freshly cooked delicious food throughout the day.

The Shop at St Martin’s is an official supplier for a range of gifts to mark this momentous occasion.

Breakfast is served Monday-Saturday 8.00am – 10.00am. Try a fully cooked English breakfast or pick and choose from a selection of fruits, pastries, meats,
