ST. PAUL, Minn. — Tune-in at 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 16th for a special treat. Sixteen men and three dozen boys are the Saint Thomas Choir from Saint Thomas Church in New York City, led by John Scot.

Sixteen men and three dozen boys are the Saint Thomas Choir from Saint Thomas Church in New York City. The ensemble sings some 400 pieces each year in 5 weekly services.

The fruit of their dedication to the Anglican choral tradition was much apparent in a performance at Saint Mark's Cathedral in Minneapolis last September.

John Scot leads his superb choir in a setting of the Magnificat by Elizabethan composer Thomas Tallis.
