Our choristers have plenty of experience with the Christmas season. Each year they sing at least three Christmas concerts, the Christmas Eve mass, and the Christmas Day mass. This is on top of singing each Sunday of Advent and the daily noon mass each Tuesday through Friday (year-round! not just during Advent!). They know a lot about the Christmas spirit.
Ten of our choristers were randomly selected to share their favorite seasonal holiday films or TV shows. Some of the selections below won't surprise you - they are boys, after all. Some will!
Honorable mentions go out to a number of all-time classics. Holiday films mentioned by other choristers or as close-seconds to those listed below include Miracle on 34th Street, White Christmas, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Elf. What a joy to see the claymation classic Rudolph at least place as a runner-up!

Christmas with Saint Paul's Choir School
Learn more about Christmas with Saint Paul's Choir School by visiting our concert page, christmasinharvardsquare.com. Christmas in Harvard Square is an annual destination celebration featuring the Choir of Men and Boys of Saint Paul's. On the webpage, find our press release for this year's premiere of original carol Love Came Down at Christmas, ticketing for this year's concerts, and a link to last year's recorded concert Starry Night: Christmas in Harvard Square.
Love Came Down at Christmas is a brand-new composition by Director of Music Mr. James Kennerley based upon the poem of the same name by Christina Rossetti. The poem was chosen by the choristers as the basis for this original composition. The results are so fantastic, the choir named its concert for the new piece. Join us for Love Came Down: Christmas in Harvard Square on December 12 and 19 at 3:00 pm. Tickets are available at the door and at christmasinharvardsquare.com.
Do you know a boy who loves to sing?
Saint Paul’s celebrates and trains the unique treble voice that only boys this age have. If you know a boy who loves to sing, we want to hear him! Most boys don’t know how well they can sing. Our auditions seek potential so that our program can educate and elevate. Learn more about Saint Paul's Choir School and sign up for an Open House at saintpaulschoirschool.us/virtual-open-house.
