The Cathedral Choir
The Cathedral Choir assists in worship leadership and comprises an ensemble of professional singers, choral scholars, and volunteer singers, all known as Lay Clerks from the city of Halifax and 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 such as “Missa Gaia/Earth Mass” for the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, and a “Jazz Easter”.
