Seeing as it is Christmas Eve and all, we have a very special concert for you this week - The 4th annual 'King's Christmas',a presentation of readings and music for the season recorded at All Saints Cathedral in Halifax. The concert features the voices of The Chapel Choir Of The University Of King's College under the direction of multi Grammy award winning composer and organist Paul Halley and his equally talented son Nick Halley. The reader is author and university professor Alexander MacLeod who brings several readings from the Maritime region

The Choir had it's beginnings in the early 1970's with the purpose of leading the worship at the Thursday Eucharists at King's - In 2007 Paul Halley was appointed Director of music for the Chapel and since then he's built the group into an exceptional ensemble, which now includes touring and recording among it's activities.
