The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace

  • TBC
  • Music

Karl Jenkins’ compelling anti-war work charts the descent into, and consequences of, war and the hope for peace. Written to commemorate the new millennium, and dedicated to victims of the Kosovo War, this large-scale work is based on texts drawn from a diverse array of cultural and religious sources. The National Youth Choir of Scotland takes us on a journey of ominous marches, haunting chants and riotous cries interspersed with gentle moments of reflection, ending on a blissful note of hope. The world's most-performed work by a living composer, The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace is emotional yet thought-provoking.

Conductor: Mark Evans

Organ: Christopher Nickol
