St. Stephen’s will have the honor of hosting the Treble Choristers of the St. Thomas Choir of Men and Boys in a concert on Tuesday, March 6, at 7:00 pm. The choristers will be directed by Daniel Hyde, Organist and Master of the Choristers, and will be accompanied by Benjamin Sheen, Assistant Organist. The concert is free; a free-will offering will be taken. The St. Thomas Choir School is a church-affiliated boarding choir school in Manhattan. It was founded in 1919 by the vestry of St. Thomas Church at the urging of T. Tertius Noble, who served as the organist of St. Thomas Church from 1913 to 1943. Noble was an English-born organist and composer, who is perhaps best known to many of us as the composer of the hymn tune for “Come, labor on.” The school is supported by St. Thomas Church, an Episcopal church that continues the Anglican tradition of all-male choral ensembles. Other than the Westminster Abbey Choir School in the United Kingdom and Escolania de Montserrat in Spain, St. Thomas is the only choir school exclusively for the boy trebles of a choir. The students, ranging from age 8 to 14, reside and study at the Choir School, a 14-story building in midtown Manhattan. Many consider the St. Thomas Choir of Men and Boys to be the leading ensemble in the Anglican choral tradition in the United States. Although the Choir’s primary function is to provide music for weekly services at St. Thomas Church, the Choir has concertized extensively throughout the United States and abroad, including performances at Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral in London; King’s College, Cambridge; and the Vatican. This is the first time the Choristers have performed at St. Stephen’s. Do not miss this opportunity to hear them!
