Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace takes its inspiration from a variety of sources and reflects of the horror and futility of war via texts from different traditions. Commissioned by the Royal Armouries and first performed by the National Youth Choir in 2000, this piece has swiftly grown in popularity with both performers and audiences alike.
Incorporating “The Last Post” into its sequence of movements the work provides a fitting focus to our thoughts in the run up to Remembrance Sunday.
In Feel the Sprit John Rutter works his magic on a range of familiar Spiritual melodies. Scored for soloist, chorus and orchestra – jazzy rhythms and harmonies abound.
