Christmas in Harvard Square: The Boys of St. Paul’s Choir School

A lovely festive choral release from the Boys of St. Paul’s Choir School, directed by their British choirmaster. Classic FM Drive Featured Album, 1 December 2014.

Cambridge choirmaster John Robinson crossed the pond to another Cambridge (in Massachusetts) to lead America's only Roman Catholic Boys choir school - The Boys Of St. Paul’s Choir School.

This is a group with a rich history. Previous line-ups have performed with the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Leonard Bernstein , on the stage of Carnegie Hall, in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican for Pope Francis, and at countless Boston Red Sox and Celtics games. 

In this, their first international recording, the Choir offers an attractive selection of favourite carols, presented in traditional as well as appealing modern arrangements by Robinson himself. This is no ordinary choir - they sing with a purity and commitment which is missing on other recordings.
