The Chapel Choir's cycle of Baroque masterworks brings them back to J.S. Bach's 'St. John Passion'this spring. This masterful representation of the Passion of Christ according to St John was first performed in Leipzig on Good Friday of 1724. It is a musically extravagant setting full of foreboding and intensity yet startling in its beauty. In Halley's view, the piece is "possibly Bach's most intense and dramatic work". The choir will be joioned by 17 instrumentalists playing period instruments and six vocal soloists from the Early Music scene in Canada dn the U.K.

"A King's Christmas" 2019

A Feast of Seasonal Song and Story
with Guest Narrator, 'Old Man Luedecke',
singer/songwriter/storyteller

The Chapel Choir of the University of King's College Halifax
Paul Halley, Director of Music
Nick Halley, Assistant Director

Described by the Chronicle Herald as “annual magic”, 'A King’s Christmas', directed by Paul Halley and featuring The Chapel Choir of The University of King's College, has become a seasonal tradition for many Nova Scotians. Each year, the performances feature carols from the mediaeval to the modern, as well as seasonal readings selected by a special guest narrator. The narrator for this, the 12th concert season, will be 'Old Man Luedecke', Nova Scotia’s Juno Award-winning songwriter and banjo player. Old Man Luedecke is loved by audiences for the engagin folk tunes he writes and for his off-the-cuff story-telling in a style that is both humorous and poignant, on themes of life and love, with a decidedly Maritime twist. Old Man Luedecke will be the first narrator of 'A King’s Christmas' to bring both spoken word and new music to the role! (Yes, he'll have his banjo.)

"Requiem" by Alfred Schnittke
 
King's at the Cathedral Series - 'For All The Saints'

The Chapel Choir of the University of King's College
Paul Halley, Director of Music
Nick Halley, Music Scholar

Ensemble Regale - myriad instruments
and Paul Halley, organist

Paul Halley remarks: "This coming Sunday afternoon (November 3rd) at 4:00 p.m. the King’s Chapel Choir will be presenting their annual “For All the Saints” concert at All Saints Cathedral. Our featured piece will be Alfred Schnittke’s Requiem, which we performed seven years ago. The audience response was pretty wild, as is the work itself.

I first encountered Schnittke’s compositions when I toured what was then the Soviet Union in 1984 and I was overwhelmed by the grit and power of his music. His voice was, and still is, utterly unique. He is steeped in the European tradition but is fearless in drawing from all manner of genres and styles. His Requiem is truly the most dramatic, I would even say, shocking setting of the text that I have ever heard. Scored for choir, soloists, trumpet, trombone, organ, piano, celeste, electric bass and guitar, and a huge array of percussion instruments, this Mass for the Dead is a haunting portrayal of chaos, despair, and darkness, but also of profound hope and exquisite beauty. Whatever happens, I can guarantee it’s not going to be one of those “well, that was nice” concerts!"

It has been five years since the Chapel Choir last performed Bach’s magnificent 'St Matthew Passion'. Scored for double choir, double orchestra, and soloists, this masterwork tells the story of Christ’s Passion using the narrative from the Gospel of St Matthew and additional texts by Bach’s librettist, Picander.  The role of the Evangelist will be sung by reknowned British tenor, Charles Daniels. The chamber orchestra, Ensemble Regale, is led by Baroque master David Greenberg and includes instrumentalists from Nova Scotia and across Canada. These performances will also feature the boy sopranos of Capella Regalis Men & Boys Choir and a line-up of stellar soloists from Canada’s early music scene. The Chapel Choir’s performances five years ago were named “the East Coast choral event of the season” by CBC Music. The University of King’s College has won a reputation for presenting world-class performances of the great Baroque masterworks right here in Nova Scotia. Please join us.

This annual tribute to those who have gone before and the opening concert of the 2018-19 King’s at the Cathedral concert series featured the supremely beautiful Requiem by French composer Maurice Duruflé (1948). Duruflé dedicated the work to the memory of his father. He had grown weary of increasingly overblown settings of the Requiem text and decided to return to the original Gregorian chant as his basic thematic material. To the chant he added masterful choral and orchestral arrangements that call to the mind of the listener images of heavenly bliss deftly interwoven with a sense of human pathos and our longing for eternal peace.

The Duruflé Requiem was performed with Ensemble Regale (a hand-picked chamber orchestra) and with Paul Halley as organist and Nick Halley directing orchestra and choir.

The concert also featured O quam gloriosum est regnum (O how glorious is the kingdom) by the English Renaissance composer William Byrd, a setting of Timete Dominum omnes sancti ejus (Fear the Lord, all ye his saints) by Italian Renaissance composer Ascanio Trombetti, G. P. da Palestrina’s Nunc Dimittis for double choir, 20th-century English composer Benjamin Britten’s Te Deum in C, and contemporary English composer Jonathan Dove’s Into Thy Hands.

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!"
