Welsh-born Karl Jenkins, who has been called: "the most popular living composer", writes music that speaks to audiences across the world. Following the huge success of:Adiemus, Jenkins brings you: The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace on EMI Classics. In a manner reminiscent of Britten's War Requiem, "The Armed Man" interpolates a number of different texts within the usual Mass form. Malory, Dryden, Swift, Tennyson, Kipling, The Koran and the Hindu Mah bhar ta contribute to a compelling account of the descent into and terrible consequences of war.
