We are a collection of dedicated students, faculty and friends of King’s who love making music together. The Chorus is a non-competitive choir open to all. The King’s Chorus was born in January of 2010 and had our debut show the following April, filling Halifax’s Cathedral Church of All Saints. Our repertoire includes classical (both ancient and modern), folk, sacred and world music.
Spring 2013 Season
Paul Halley’s LOVE SONGS FOR SPRINGTIME
A concert in celebration of springtime renewal and awakening. We will be singing Paul Halley’s suite, Love Songs for Springtime, as well as his glorious setting of the Appalachian hymn Wondrous Love. Our dear director could not resist throwing into the program also works by Gabrielli and Handl as well.
They have been described by New York Time’s critic Bob Zeidler as “alternately sweet and droll”. He later remarked that Wondrous Love in ”Halley’s arrangement brings forth the heroic dimension of [the] work”.
