Catholic News Service story on St. Paul's Choir | Harvard Square by Chaz Muth.
St. Paul's Church Harvard Square is home to one of very few traditional choirs of boys and men in the USA. The Choir is supported by the only Roman Catholic Boys Choir School in America, while the professional men are drawn from local music colleges including the Longy School of Music, NEC and Boston Conservatory.
As a primarily liturgical Choir at St. Paul's, the principal focus of music-making is the Mass, in celebration of which the boys and men sing music from the great history of the Church, in the fine acoustics of St. Paul's Church Harvard Square. Plainsong, Polyphony, Romantic and Contemporary composition are all represented in their repertoire.
Founded in 1963, the St. Paul's Choir School is celebrating its 50th year, and last November a group of current students traveled to Rome to sing for Pope Francis. Mr. John Robinson is the school's director of music and is interviewed in the story.
Mr. Robinson is always interested in hearing potential boy choristers throughout the year, and in meeting with prospective parents. firstname.lastname@example.org. Professional Altos, Tenors and Basses are encouraged to contact the Director of Music throughout the year ahead of the annual auditions in early May each year.
