A hearty “thank you” to everyone who attended the To Bethlehem with Kings concerts, December 19-21. We had a great time, and we hope you did too.

For four of our boys, it was their first concert in the mens’ sections of the choir. This fulfills one of Nick’s ambitions for the choir, to have boys stay with Capella Regalis to move to the mens’ sections as their voices mature. We also had very fine performances from boys in the treble section who ably filled the gaps left by the young men now in the alto and bass sections.

We’re pretty sure that anyone who attended the concerts will be thinking about the terrific reading from “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” for quite a while.

Thank you: Musique Royale, Christ Church (Windsor), St John’s Church (Lunenburg), St Mary’s Basilica (Halifax),  Marianne Green, the Maritime Brass, the concert volunteers, all of the parents, our transportation team, Halifax Transit for their support of the transportation programme, The University of King’s College, the King’s College Chapel community, our Advisory Board, all of our donors who make Capella Regalis possible, and with apologies to anyone who has been mistakenly left off this list. We are so fortunate to have so many supporters!

We wish you a Merry Christmas, and look forward to seeing you at Evensong in January.


Capella Regalis was founded in Halifax, Nova Scotia by Director Nick Halley in 2010.  The choir comprises twelve men and fourteen boys (ages 7 – 13) and is modeled on the great Anglican tradition of men and boys church choirs.  The choir rehearses and sings weekly Choral Evensongs at the University of King’s College Chapel in Halifax and performs concerts around Nova Scotia throughout the September – June season. Capella Regalis is a registered Society under the Societies Act of Nova Scotia and is an educational outreach programme of Musique Royale (www.musiqueroyale.com).
