The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace Karl Jenkins
Venue: Tyndale Baptist Church
Tickets will be available soon.
Written for the Millennium celebrations by Jenkins, a Welsh composer, and dedicated to the victims of the Kosovo crisis, this is an anti-war piece based on the Catholic Mass but incorporating words from a range of religious and historical sources.
Full of good tunes, punchy rhythms and unashamed melodrama, The Armed Man is one of Jenkins’ most popular works, regularly performed by professional and amateur musicians worldwide ever since its premiere nearly two decades ago.
Spend the day singing this popular work, under the direction of Bristol Choral Society’s Musical Director Hilary Campbell. Early booking advised: it’ll be popular!
