Karl Jenkins: The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace

2005 NR

Underscoring powerful themes of war and peace, this soul-stirring presentation of acclaimed Welsh composer Karl Jenkins' contemporary mass combines a performance of "The Armed Man" with affecting visuals. Great Britain's Royal Armouries commissioned Jenkins to create the mass for millennium celebrations, and the piece -- by turns earthy and otherworldly -- was originally dedicated to Kosovo's war victims.
