A new decade is upon us and we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the King’s Chorus, as well as Capella Regalis, two choirs brought to fruition by Nick Halley. To celebrate, the King’s Chorus will be presenting its 10th anniversary concert featuring Handel’s Dixit Dominus, as well as pieces by other composers including Charpentier and Pärt.
Choral services are ongoing at the Cathedral Church of All Saints and the University of King’s College Chapel. The Cathedral Choir, Chapel Choir, and Capella Regalis Men & Boys Choir, under the direction of Nick Halley and Paul Halley, continue to lend their voices to the great works of sacred music. Capella Regalis will be going on a westward tour May 20-31 with stops including Montreal, Kingston, Muskoka, and Toronto, with more details to come.
Every Wednesday at 5 PM in the Chapel, the Chapel Choir sings Choral Evensong, as well as a Solemn Choral Eucharist every Thursday at 5 PM in the Chapel. During Lent, Evensong will be held at the Cathedral Church of All Saints. These services continue weekly until the end of term, excepting the November study break. The Chapel Music Card lists the schedule of music for the term, including additional choral services.
Additionally, weekly chant services of Compline continue at the King’s Chapel on Monday and Tuesday nights at 9:30 PM. These services are sung by the Women’s and Men’s Compline Choirs, respectively.
The Cathedral’s Sundays at Four series is a series comprising evensongs, concerts, and special services, held each Sunday at 4 PM. This is a wonderful opportunity to find peace out of the busy week and treat yourself to gorgeous music and beautiful words that will calm your mind and soothe your soul. All are welcome!
