Cappelen was born in Drammen, Norway. He studied under Ludvig Mathias Lindeman and at the Leipzig Conservatoire. In 1887, after 20 years as organist in Drammen (Strømsø and Bragernes), he became organist at Vår Frelsers kirke, the Cathedral in Kristiania, a position he held until his death in 1916. He gained a prominent position of the Norwegian Church music.[3] He was also teacher in the Fair song at the Practical-Theological Seminary at the University of Oslo (1890-1916). Cappelen was known as a highly skilled organ player and improviser, and he gave concerts all over Norway. As a composer he is within the romantic era, and was influenced from Mendelssohn and Schumann. He published some songs, piano pieces, organ works, cantatas, and more. Especially known is his melody to the hymn "Min lodd falt mig liflig", which was part of the kantate to 25 year anniversary of Diakonissehjemmet in 1894. In the Norwegian hymn book (1986), it was called "Min Herre har kalt meg". This hymn is missing from the Norwegian hymn book of 2013, but the melody is passed on to the hymn "Mer hellighet gi meg". Cappelen also prepared for the Messebog for den norske Kirke (1891).[2]
