The Cathedral Choir assists in worship leadership at the Cathedral Church of All Saints in Halifax.  The choir comprises an ensemble of professional singers, choral scholars, and volunteer singers, all known as Lay Clerks, from the city of Halifax and surrounding area. The choir sings at the 11:00 AM Choral Eucharist most Sundays, from September through to early June, and offers services of Evensong, Lessons & Carols and Readings & Music, as well as concerts.

The Choir’s wide-ranging performing activities are rooted in centuries-old musical traditions and its repertoire ranges from plainsong and Renaissance polyphony to contemporary masterpieces. The Choir has also sung services in a myriad of genres including the “Missa Gaia/Earth Mass” for the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, and a “Jazz Easter”. (the “Resurrection Mass”).  In addition to assisting in worship, the Cathedral Choir has played a role in many provincial occasions which have taken place in the Cathedral. 

Directed by organist/composer and 5-time Grammy Award winner, Paul Halley, and Assistant Director, Nick Halley, the group is always pleased to hear from singers interested in auditioning for the choir.
