‘Christmas in Harvard Square’ maintains top-five spot on Billboard charts for nine weeks and counting
The Boys of St. Paul’s Choir School’s debut album brings truth and beauty to the masses
ATLANTA, Dec. 11, 2014 – CHRISTMAS IN HARVARD SQUARE, the major label and international debut recording from the Boys of St. Paul’s Choir School, Harvard Square has been a huge hit, securing a spot among the top five albums on the Billboard magazine classical music charts for an impressive nine consecutive weeks.
The Boys of St. Paul’s Choir School recently received praise from one of the most prominent figures in the Catholic Church, Cardinal Sean O’Malley.
“One of the great God-given expressions of the sacred is the gift of beauty,” said O’Malley. “Beautiful music can reach the heart in unique ways. It has been an honor to have the only Catholic choir school for boys in our archdiocese. The Boys of St. Paul’s Choir School sing with their bell-like sound and inspire souls to the contemplation of Heaven through their ethereal music. We are thrilled that already the response has been outstanding for their Christmas album, CHRISTMAS IN HARVARD SQUARE.”
CHRISTMAS IN HARVARD SQUARE also has received a glowing endorsement from Lisa Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com and author of The Grace of Yes.
“I think you’ll agree with me that [CHRISTMAS IN HARVARD SQUARE] is not simply a musical gift for the holidays,” says Hendey. “I contend that CHRISTMAS IN HARVARD SQUARE is a gift for today, tomorrow and any day of the year. The voices of the boys are truly angelic!”
