    Matthew Martin is a composer and Organist of the London Oratory. He followed an organ scholarship at Magdalen College, Oxford with postgraduate work at the Royal Academy of Music, London where he studied with David Titterington and won all the major performance prizes, including the DipRAM – the Academy’s highest award for performance in a finals recital.
    From 2001-2004 he continued his studies with Marie-Claire Alain in Paris and in 2006 was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music for “distinction in the music profession”. Matthew has held positions at New College, Oxford, Canterbury Cathedral and Westminster Cathedral, and since 2001 has been involved with the annual Edington Festival of Music within the Liturgy where he is director of the Nave Choir of men and boys.

    As a recitalist, he has given concerts both in the UK, including at the Cheltenham, Spitalfields and South Bank festivals, and as far afield as Japan and Australia. In 2010, he was invited to play the recital at the annual presentation of diplomas for the Royal College of Organists in Southwark Cathedral.

    Matthew’s career as a composer is rapidly gaining him an international reputation. He is frequently commissioned to write music for leading ensembles and festivals – most recently the BBC Singers, the Cardinall’s Musick, the choirs of Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral and St John’s College, Cambridge, the St Davids Cathedral Festival, the Bergen Festival, Norway and the American Guild of Organists. His work is published exclusively by Faber Music.
