The Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys is considered by major critics the outstanding choral ensemble of the Anglican musical tradition in the United States today. Besides offering a full concert series each year, the Choir of sixteen men and three dozen boys sings at five weekly principal worship services, preparing an astounding four hundred pieces of sacred music a year.
The Men of the Choir are professional singers; the Boys attend Saint Thomas Choir School, the only church-related residential choir school in the United States, and one of only a few similar schools remaining in the world.
The Choir has been directed since 2004 by John Scott, formerly Organist and Director of Music at St. Paul's Cathedral in London. The Gentlemen of the Choir are listed below. In addition, there are 30 choristers from 11 states.
