Choir of St. Pauls

The Choir of St. Paul’s | Harvard Square is 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, 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 our repertoire. The boys sing at daily services, with the result that our boys have a large repertoire of boys-voice music. The Choir is fed by a training choir of 4th and 5th grade boys known as ‘The Trebles,’ they sing three times each week. We also maintain a busy schedule of concerts in Massachusetts, tour nationally and internationally, and record frequently for television and radio. We have collaborated with renowned ensembles such as the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
