About Us

Kingsfold Music, formerly known as Kingsfold Music Productions, was originally founded in 2000 by Feargal and Breda King for the online publication and promotion of the liturgical music of Feargal King and the musical talents of Breda King. Over the years our purpose and our ethos has evolved. The desire to simply promote has become the desire to share and make the most of our gifts, and to help others do the same to the best of our abilities. Even as we realize our own God-given potential through our faith and our service, so we hope to help others do the same. Of course, we also have also had to support ourselves and our efforts! Our loyal friends and customers give us the gift of their support . . . we hope that our efforts support and enable them in return.


Information on Breda'a work and ministry continues to be available through her own website, bredaking.com.

They both worked at St. Joseph Parish, Roseburg, Oregon, he as Director of Music & Liturgy and she as Director of Youth Ministries. They got married in 1995, and after the birth of their daughter Ríoghna Rose made the move to Illinois.

He is also the Director of the Rockford Diocesan Liturgical Chorale, Past-President of the SW Chicago Chapter of Chorister's Guild (an organization that supports children's choirs), and a member of the National Forum of Liturgical Composers.

In his spare time (such as it is!) he teaches guitar and choir at a homeschool co-op and manages and designs websites through his new online venture, K-Fold.net.
