Catholic Children’s Choirs

Every September, at the start of the academic year, I receive quite a number of enquiries from parents who are seeking a choir for their children. Aside from the usual benefits of singing in a choir, such as a sense of shared purpose, an acquirement of discipline, confidence and artistic skill, many of these parents rightly see a Catholic Church Choir as a place in which their child will grow in their love of the Faith. Choirs such as these are nurseries for young Catholic musicians and absolutely vital to the future welfare of the Liturgy. It would be wonderful to publicise any children's choirs, especially those which seek to teach and nurture the traditional elements of Catholicism such as Gregorian Chant, catechetical hymns and music from the treasury of riches composed over the centuries to adorn the Liturgy and glorify God. Pastors or music directors who would be happy to promote their children's choirs here on NLM, please email me the contact details at and I will put up a post in the next few days.
