Print Friendly Page 
The Choirboys The Choirboys, CJ Porter-Thaw, 11, Patrick Aspbury, 12, and Ben Inman, 12, are described as a mini version of the Three Tenors. The group was formed after talent scouts visited 50 cathedrals and churches across the UK. Porter-Thaw and Aspbury were both members of the choir at the King's School in Ely, Cambridgeshire. Inman was singing in the choir at state-run Minster School in Southwell, Nottinghamshire. The trio is co-managed by former treble Aled Jones.

In 2007, a new trio was selected to replace Ben, Patrick and CJ. They are William Dutton, Bill Goss, and Andrew Swait and have recorded a Christmas CD scheduled to be released at the end of 2007.
