 Update me on new releases by Halley

Paul Halley (b01/01/1952)

Paul Halley has led a fascinating and varied career. Born in England, he undertook his early musical training in Ottawa, Canada, before returning to his homeland as organ scholar at Trinity College, Cambridge. From 1977 to 1990 he was organist and choirmaster at the Cathedral of St John the Divine in New York City. While there, Halley was also a principal member of the Paul Winter Consort, the innovative and experimental musical group led by American saxophone player Paul Winter. The group’s most popular album Missa Gaia or Earth Mass included the traditional Mass text, among others, with the instruments of the Paul Winter Consort, vocalists and the sounds of wolves, whales, eagles and other animals. Halley was associated with the consort as a performer and composer for almost 20 years, earning five GRAMMY® Awards for his work on several of the group’s recordings. In 1999 he moved to rural Connecticut, continuing his work with choirs and church music by establishing the children’s choir, Chorus Angelicus and the adult ensemble, Gaudeamus. Since 2007, Halley has been based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where he is the director of chapel music at the University of King’s College and University Musician at the Atlantic School of Theology. He is regularly commissioned to compose new music in a variety of genres, styles and instrumentations.
