All Saints’ Cathedral hosts a considerable number of musical groups from the Maritimes and further afield who take advantage of the Cathedral’s fine acoustics in presentations of concerts throughout the year. Recitals on the fine organ are generally given on Wednesdays at noon during the summer.

The Cathedral Choir

The Cathedral Choir comprises eight professional singers and sixteen volunteer singers. The choir sings at the 10:30 AM Choral Eucharist every Sunday, September through June, and offers services of Evensong, Lessons & Carols and Readings & Music on a monthly basis, as well as an annual concert. Paul Halley is always pleased to hear from singers interested in auditioning for the choir.

Capella Regalis

The Cathedral is fortunate in having Capella Regalis Men & Boys Choir in residence. Conducted by Nick Halley, this group regularly sings at 4 PM Evensong on Sundays during term.

For more information about Capella Regalis visit http://www.capellaregalis.com

We are hoping to be able to form a Cathedral Girls’ Choir at some point in the near future, to offer girls and young women the same opportunity currently given to the boys and young men of Capella Regalis.

The Sundays at Four Series

Every Sunday at 4:00 p.m. there is a Choral Evensong, a Lessons & Carols Service, or a Concert at the Cathedral, except for occasional Sundays falling on national holiday weekends. For our Patronal Festival on All Saints Day, November 1st there is a Three-Choirs Festal Evensong with the choirs of All Saints Cathedral, King’s College Chapel and Capella Regalis. For more information visit the “Sundays at Four” link on the home page.

The King’s at the Cathedral Series

Thanks to a long history of collaboration between the Cathedral and the University of King’s College, there are many times throughout the year when the Chapel Choir sings at the Cathedral either for weekday Evensongs or for concerts. The College’s annual graduation ceremony, “Encaenia”, is held at the Cathedral every May. During Lent the Chapel Choir sings Evensong on Wednesdays at 5 PM. In addition, the Cathedral has been the Halifax venue for the Chapel Choir’s King’s at the Cathedral series, comprising “For All The Saints” in November, “A King’s Christmas” in December and one of the Bach Passions or the B Minor Mass in the spring.
