Although 500 years old, the world's most famous boys choir maintains its clear, soprano voices and remains perpetually young. The choir is divided into four touring groups, all of equal standing, ranging from ages 10 to 14. There are around 100 choristers in the four groups, each of which spends nine to 11 weeks of the school year on tour. The choirs share in tours, concerts in Vienna, CD recordings and television appearances. Each choir has a choirmaster and two tutors who travel with the boys. A recent feature film, Silk Road: Songs along the Road and Time, illustrates the life of a chorister during a year on tour.
