Monaco 2004 Cathedral Choir 100th Anniversary 1 value depicting Cathedral Building, Choirboy and Emblem -
Founded in 1974 as a part of Monaco Cathedral Choir, and placed under the High Patronage H.S.H. Prince Albert II, Monaco Boys Choir contribute to showcase the Principality’s historic association with culture and the performing arts.
The first known traces of a vocal group with children’s voices date back in the XVIIIth century, to the reign of Prince Antoine 1st. This group, whose mission was to ensure the execution of liturgies at the Palatine Chapel, may be considered as the ancestor of the future “Choir of the Monaco Cathedral”.
