The Boys of St. Paul's Choir School

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. One thing is clear, this beautiful music has a stream of inspiration running clearly throughout. A must have for quintessential boy-choir category in the music collection. Ave Maria will be the second international release for the Choir School - who topped the Billboard classical charts, and became a media favourite with their 2014 release Christmas in Harvard Square. 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. The Choir School seeks to embrace the great cathedral school tradition as it unites a rigorous musical and academic cur-riculum preparing each student to grow and flourish in a dynamic and changing world.

The trebles of Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum, Benjamin Nicholas (director)

This ‘songbook’ is unique to the Schola Cantorum choristers of Tewkesbury Abbey. “Essentially, it’s a showcase for the Abbey trebles,” their Director of Music Benjamin Nicholas explains. “We’ve been assembling our own 'Songbook' for quite a while now – the songs the trebles sing, from time to time, in boys-only concerts, and which they are taught in individual singing lessons. I’ve always been keen to build each boy up as a soloist, not necessarily with the express idea of them singing lots of solos, but so that they can learn to sing in a soloistic way.”

This is evident most of all in the distinctive singing of 11-year-old Laurence Kilsby, whose gifts won him the BBC Chorister of the Year competition in 2009. On this recording, he features as soloist in two Shelley settings by Roger Quilter, the Bach/Gounod Ave Maria and in John Ireland’s beautiful, sincerely-felt Passiontide motet Ex Ore Innocentium from 1944.

“Throughout, the trebles of the Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum give excellent performances of impressive consistency under the leadership of their director, Benjamin Nicholas. They have an uninhibited, fresh sound, coupled with the skill to sustain lengthy phrases with even tone...[Kilsby] displays tremendous maturity both in vocal timbre and in his musicianship...I can foresee a glittering future for him.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2011
