 Our Description

Bursting with the transcendent sounds of this choir of boys and men coupled with the glorious acoustic of St. Paul's in Harvard Square, every selection on Ave Maria tells a story. Each beautiful and interesting work has its own history. Perhaps none more significant than that of the inspiration for Palestrina's Missa Pappae Marcelli or of the extraordinary depiction of the Magi from the East in Reges Tharsis,on to the vivid and dramatic use of harmony in Bruckner's Virga Jesse floruit. One thing is clear, this beautiful music has a stream of inspiration running clearly throughout. Dvorak and Rachmaninoff are such well-known names, however Rachmaninoff himself called Bogoroditse Dyevo a favorite of his own works. 18 inspiring hymns in total.

St. Paul's Choir School have been featured on CBS This Morning, NPR, Good Morning America, Fox & Friends, WGBH, Boston Globe and even had their own PBS Special. Founded in 1963 by Dr. Theodore Marier, an internationally acclaimed choral scholar, Saint Paul's Choir School is the premiere musically intensive boy choir school, which educates choristers in grades 4 through 8 in the United States.
