• The All Saints' Choir of Men and Boys (also known as the Ashmont Boy Choir), is modeled on the English Cathedral choral tradition and assists in leading worship at the 10:00 am Solemn High Mass at All Saints' on Sundays during the school year. The Choir performs the finest sacred music from Gregorian chant to the works of living composers, singing a full mass setting, a psalm setting, and an anthem or motet every Sunday.

  • The boy and teen singers are constantly immersed in some of the finest music ever written. Most of the music the Choir sings—ranging from the works of early English composers such as Byrd and Tallis, to continental composers such as Victoria and Palestrina, to the Baroque and Classical works of Bach, Haydn, and Mozart, and to the 19th- and 20th-century English cathedral repertoire from Stanford to Howells and beyond—was originally written for boys to sing, and is therefore ideally suited for their voices and intellects.
  • Membership in the Choir is free of charge and open to any boy who enjoys singing.

    No prior musical experience or religious affiliation is required: basic receptivity to musical training, and a firm commitment of time for rehearsals and services are the only requirements.
