The Boys of St. Paul’s Choir School

Located in the heart of Harvard Square, Saint Paul’s has for almost 150 years been local and global force for the renewal of Catholic life and thought. Over the decades, St. Paul’s has earned international recognition for the profound beauty of its liturgical and musical traditions — and for ministries that touch lives within the Harvard University community and far beyond. The individual parts of the Saint Paul’s community — Saint Paul’s Parish, Saint Paul’s Choir School and the Harvard Catholic Center — mutually enhance and support one another’s missions and together make up a unique center of Catholic faith, life and culture.

The jewel in the crown of Saint Paul’s liturgical life is the Saint Paul’s Choir. Founded in 1905, the ensemble is one of the premier ensembles of its type in the country. The choir comprises boy choristers, educated in the European Cathedral school tradition at Saint Paul’s Choir School; there are also altos, tenors and basses drawn from Boston’s pool of top professional singers, as well as the Choral Scholars, who are recent graduates of the Choir School. The choir performs hymns, plainchant and the finest choral music drawn from the Church’s rich repertoire sung weekly in the sublime acoustic of Saint Paul’s Church.
