Notes & Reviews:

The St. Thomas Choir is considered by major critics to be the outstanding choral ensemble of the Anglican musical tradition in the United States today. Besides offering a full annual concert series with orchestra, the Choir of 15 men and 24 boys sings at five weekly principal worship services of the Church, preparing an astounding 400 pieces of sacred music a year. The Men of the Choir are professional singers; the Boys attend St. Thomas Choir School, the only church-related residential choir school in the United States. Conductor John Scott was born in Wakefield, Yorkshire, England. In 1974 he became Organ Scholar of St. John's College, Cambridge. His career as organ recitalist has taken him to five continents. In 2004, after 26 years as Organist and Music Director of St. Paul's Cathedral in London, he came to the United States to take up the post of Organist and Director of Music at St. Thomas Church, in New York.
