Choir of Men and Boys, and St. Cecilia Choir of Girls
Choirs of men and boys are an important legacy in the venerable Anglican tradition. Formed in 1893, our choir has traveled widely and has worked with many famous musical personalities in the Anglican music world. The St. Cecilia Choir of Girls joins forces with either the Boys or the Men and Boys each week at St. Paul's. The St. Cecilia Choir celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2002.
Boys and Girls are admitted to the choir as early as age 7 if they can read words well, but typical ages are 8-18. Male teenagers whose voices have changed may sing in the men's section. Adult men may join the countertenor (alto), tenor, or bass sections.
On Sundays, various forces in our choirs (men, boys, girls, women) alternate singing the 9:15 a.m. Eucharist with the 11 a.m. Eucharist or Morning Prayer, and the Men, Boys, and Girls together sings numerous choral Evensongs throughout the year. A tour of England with the Men, Boys, and Girls took place in 2004, 2008, and in the summer of 2014 they traveled to Ely Cathedral in England where they sang in residence for a week and took in many inspiring and educational sights.
