Invocation to the Holy Spirit 2015 Mixed Voices Invocation to the Holy Spirit is a short and simple work, dedicated to the memory of David Trendell.

O lux beata Trinitas 2015 Mixed Voices This setting of ‘O lux beata Trinitas’ (ascribed to St Ambrose) weaves together a range of vocal styles and textures to build gradually from the quietly pensive opening section to a rousing unison declamation on the words ‘Deo Patri sit Gloria!’. With the hallmarks of Matthew Martin’s inimitable voice, this anthem will prove a powerful choice in evensong or as part of a mixed choral programme. 3:30 View Score
Dormi, Iesu! 2015 Mixed Voices This piece is a reticent carol and weaves a complex web of counterpoint within both the vocal lines and organ part, distilling into a stark treble solo as the text turns to English. An ideal work to highlight a more reflective side of the festive season. 2:45 View Score
Laudate Dominum 2015 Mixed Voices This joyful piece for SATB and organ alternates spritely and brassy organ fanfares with bold choral assertions, with the core pulse often offset by intricate rhythmic dialogue between organ and choir. It uses varied choral textures to paint the text, culminating in the bold, homophonic statement ‘Omnis spiritus laudet Dominim!’ (All creatures praise the Lord), before an ecstatic Alleluia. 3:15 View Score

I Saw the Lord 2012 Mixed Voices The Festival Anthem I saw the Lord (2012) is a setting of words from Isaiah Ch 6, some of which are perhaps better known in the context of the great Victorian anthem by John Stainer. This Trinitarian/Dedication text (starting with the words “in the year that King Uzziah died”) is both powerful and full of dramatic imagery - flying seraphim, live coals, cries of the Tersanctus - as well as containing darker and more reflective passages. 10 View Score
O Oriens 2012 Mixed Voices Commissioned for the Choir of St Paul’s Cathedral, this superb festive choral work brings together the traditional French melody of Veni, veni Emmanuel with the Advent Antiphon O Oriens. The relatively accessible choral lines are underpinned by a wonderfully majestic organ accompaniment, which exhibits Matthew Martin’s genius for creating a new sound-world from the perfect balance of tradition and innovation. O Oriens is suitable for Advent services and concerts and would be an ideal choice for choirs performing in vast acoustics. 6 View Score
