On Friday, Nov. 11, King's honours Remembrance Day with a service of Choral Evensong in the Chapel. A simple remembrance in prayer and song, led by the Chaplain and Chapel Choir.
No sermon. No glorification of war. Simply a remembrance.
Members of the local Halifax Rifles regiment read the names of Kingsmen killed in action in WWI and WWII, as well as the Halifax Rifles Fallen in WWII and Canadians killed in action in Afghanistan. The Last Post is played and the Chapel Choir sings William Byrd's Justorum Animae.
