Why are there only boys in the Vienna boys choir?

It is called The Vienna Boy's Choir (Wiener Sängerknabel), "officially" founded in 1498 as a Court Choir. The choir has boy sopranos and altos, and adult tenors and basses (many of them are former choir members),As with many choirs in Europe who may date back to the Middle Ages, women (girls) were not allowed to sing in church choirs. Also, many famous choir schools were, regrettably, also not open for girls.Thas has changed considerably. For instance, the Salisbury Cathedral Choir (UK) has now a boy's and girl's choir. As there are some slightly tonal differences between boy and girl soprano they alternate each day singing Evensong.That choir's tradition is even older than that of the Vienna choir, they're singing their hearts out as early as 1258.

Are the Vienna boys choir castrated?

"The Roman Catholic Church was known to have castrated their choir boys to preserve the prepubescent voices but that action died out in the 1800's i would think the same could be said about the Vienna boys choir. " The church never castrated anyone, it was an offense punishable by excommunication and performed by people who kept quiet about it. The church was happy to employ castrati in its choirs and the last one retired as head of the Cistine Chapel choir in about 1913. The unified Italian state made it illegal in 1870 and pope Leo xiii formally banned it eight years later. Sadly this wouldn't seem to have been an end to a long tradition of harm to boys. The high voices of the Vienna Boys Choir are perfectly natural, the clue is in the title; boys.
