St.Patrick's vs St.Thomas

We'd like to visit one of those churches during Sunday mass so we can listen to organ/choir.I have narrowed down to those two, due to their location and our time frame.Any comments as far as better choir/organ? Thanks in advance.

The organ and choir are vastly better at St. Thomas's. There are Catholic churches in Manhattan that have good music -- but St. Patrick's is not among them.

It's a fine point, but in case it matters to you, the service at St. Thomas is a Eucharist, not a Mass. St. Thomas is an Episcopal (Anglican) church, not Catholic. As GWB says, St. Thomas is well known for their excellent choral music, so if that's that you care most about, that's the one to pick. Enjoy!

Frangipani, jekav knows that; he made it clear on his other thread (where his alternative was the largely Baptist Riverside Church) that he does not care about the religion involved, he is only going for the music.
