The All Saints' Choir of Men and Boys consists of boys aged 7 to 18 – most of whom live in the Dorchester area – and professional and volunteer singing men from the greater Boston area. The Choir strives to give urban boys a safe place in which to make new friends, experience the uplifting power of great music, discover the value of teamwork and responsibility, and learn musical and life skills that will last them a lifetime. The Choir, modeled on the English Cathedral choral tradition, rehearses twice a week and sings at the 10:00 am Solemn High Mass at All Saints' most Sundays during the school year, featuring the finest in sacred music from Gregorian chant to contemporary sacred music. In addition, it seeks to enrich the life of the greater Boston community through its concerts and recordings. Ethnic and racial diversity is a hallmark of the choir.

Recently, the choir developed a partnership with the Harvard Glee Club. In addition to numerous joint performances with the Glee Club at Harvard University, the two choirs have recently launched the Archibald T. Davison Fellowship, a mentoring program in which a Harvard student assists in rehearsals, sings in the choir, and acts as a mentor to the All Saints' choristers.

Admission to the choir for boys currently in the second through sixth grades takes place throughout the school year. No prior musical experience or religious affiliation is required. The only requirements are musical aptitude, receptivity to musical training, and a firm commitment of time for rehearsals and services. Most of the boys come to the choir without any prior singing experience For more information, please contact Andrew Sheranian, the Organist and Master of Choristers at 617-436-3520, ext. 212, or at .
