One of London’s most charming churches, St. Martin in the Fields, gave its name to one of the world’s most often recorded orchestras.

Founded by Sir. Neville Marriner, the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields orchestra presented its first concert in 1959 at the church on Travalgar Square in London.

The orchestra is said to perform more than 100 concerts each year.
