- Augustinian cloister Neuwerk
The roots of the choir reach back to the 12th century. The Neuwerk cloister of the Augustinian Canons was mounted outside the city gates of Halle in 1116. The cloister had the dominant position in the intellectual life of the city. As well it had the exclusive right to teach pupils and students. The Choir pupils had the obligations to provide musical adornment of the religious services in the big churches of the city.

After the dissolution of the Lutheran Gymnasium after the Napoleonic war against Prussia, the choir was affiliated to the Francke Foundations, where he resides by today.
- retention of the "musica sacra"
The persevering and skilful negotiation of the board of directors of the Franke Foundation and the Evangelical Supreme Consitory, it is due to them that the Stadtsingechor zu Halle could preserve his independence in its tradition in the care of "Musica Sacra" largely. It was a difficult venture during the years of the Nazi dictatorship because the Stadtsingechor should be a real "Jungschar choir" demanded by the Nazi headmans.
