CHRISTMAS IN HARVARD SQUARE, the debut major label and international recording from The Boys of St. Paul’s Choir School, Harvard Square, is the only Catholic choir school for boys in the United States. The album is slated to be released Oct. 7 by AimHigher Recordings — the sister label of De Montfort Music.
Both traditional and contemporary arrangements are featured on the 19-track album, including some original arrangements by John Robinson, Director of Music at the Choir School and the Parish of St. Paul. It also includes must-have renditions of both Rutter & Willcocks arrangements. The cozy and ethereal music collection of songs for Christmas celebrates the Nativity of Christ and coincides with the 50th anniversary of the school.
Having performed from the Boston Symphony Orchestra to Carnegie Hall and St. Peter’s Square at a papal audience for Pope Francis, the Boys of St. Paul’s Choir School have covered much diverse musical and spiritual territory. They are at an apex of greatness under the musical direction of Robinson, who hails from the U.K. and came up in the boys choir schools in Cambridge, U.K.Founded in 1963 by Dr. Theodore Marier, an internationally acclaimed scholar of Gregorian chant, Saint Paul’s Choir School is a musically intensive, academically rigorous Catholic day school that forms and educates boys in grades 4 through 8 in the rich music tradition of the Roman Catholic Church. The Choir School seeks to embrace the great cathedral school tradition as it unites a rigorous musical and academic curriculum with our Catholic faith and moral tradition, preparing each student to grow and flourish in a dynamic and changing world.
The Choir School has been described not as a school with a choir, but as a choir with a school.
