Karl Jenkins - Mass for Peace

11 Feb 2014

KARL JENKINS - THE ARMED MAN

The Armed Man is a Mass by Welsh Composer Karl Jenkins, subtitled "A Mass for Peace". The piece was commissioned by the Royal Armouries Museum for the Millennium celebrations, and to mark the museum's move from London to Leeds, and it was dedicated to victims of the Kosovo crisis. Like Benjamin Britten's War Requiem before it, it is essentially an anti-war piece and is based on the Catholic Mass, which Jenkins combines with other sources, principally the fifteenth century folk song L'homme armé in the first and last movements. It was written for SATB chorus with soloists (soprano and Muezzin) and a symphonic orchestra. Guy Wilson, then master of the museum, selected the texts for the mass.

We will be learning an abbreviated version of the  the Mass.  Below, you can download each of the 5 pieces and listen to them on YouTube.  Over time, I will be uploading mp3s of each individual part so that you can rehearse in the comfort of your own homes! I am counting on you all to pull this off!! Ex-pupils, it would be hugely appreciated if you could join us at this event. 

DATES FOR REHEARSALS WILL BE ISSUED SOON....
