The choir's primary function is to sing at the weekly services of Evensong and Holy Eucharist, as well as other major services throughout the academic year. Since July 2007, Paul Halley has built the group into a fine ensemble which now includes touring and recording among its activities. Paul Halley directs the Chapel Choir in Choral Evensong, Wednesdays at 5:00 p.m. and Solemn Eucharist, Thursdays, 5:00 p.m., during academic term. The Reverend Gary Thorne is priest-in-charge.

The University of King's College Chapel Choir suspended its cycle of Bach masterworks for one year to present another great pillar of the Baroque repertoire – the Vespers of 1610 by Claudio Monteverdi.  A monumental work scored for soloists, choir, and orchestra, the Vespers foreshadowed the religious masterworks of Bach and Handel, and has earned a place in the history of western music as a revolutionary and now iconic work.

From the CBC Producer (Commissioning organization):
"Hi, Paul - Just a brief note to tell you that your arrangement was a huge hit.  Honestly, I simply was stunned by it.  How anyone can have something new to say about this tune astounds me.  But you did. 
The 3rd verse, the trumpet repeating the sounding joy in imitation, and the final fanfare, up to the last note, it was all grand. 
Another winner!"
