The Choirboys are an English boyband, made up of cathedral choristers. They are: Charles John "CJ" Porter-Thaw from Sheffield, Patrick Aspbury from Chelmsford, and Ben Inman, from Yorkshire. Porter-Thaw and Aspbury both sung in Ely Cathedral and Inman sings in Southwell Minster. In the summer of 2005, they were selected from cathedral choristers around the UK for a recording contract with Universal Classics and Jazz, and released their self-titled first album in November of that same year.
The album sold 100,000 copies in the first week, making it the fastest-selling classical debut album ever in the UK and earning The Choirboys a Gold Disc which was presented to them on the popular BBC children's TV programme, Blue Peter. It has since gone platinium and has to date sold over 750,000 copies.
After an intensive promotional tour of TV and radio stations, they have since performed at several events, including the Southwell Minster St. Cecilia Concert, the Ely Cathedral May Day Concert and charity concerts in major London venues such as the Royal Albert Hall.
A second album 'The Carols Album' has now been released (December 2007). However, it does not feature any of the three original members, with the record company citing that their voices have changed too dramatically to continue the choirster theme. The new members are Andrew Swait, William Dutton and Bill Goss.
