St. Paul's Choir School in Cambridge Mass. Celebrates 50 Years

Catholic News Service just posted this great video about St. Paul’s Choir School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the only school of its kind in the United States, this year celebrating its 50th anniversary.
“(The congregation) are hearing something unique. They are hearing the Mass prayed in a very beautiful way, and that aesthetic sensitivity is something that we’re very keen on in the church in general. It’s a beautiful church, with beautiful vestments and altar frontals, and things like that, and so to give people an experience which is clearly beyond what they’re experiencing in everyday life, is a very important, powerful tool of art and music in service to the liturgy, that we feel very strongly about.” (John Robinson, Director of music.)
