and other works

As featured on the international best-selling album, The Armed Man is a powerful and compelling account of the descent into, and terrible consequences of war. Commissioned for the millennium by Britain's Royal Amouries and dedicated to the victims of the Kosovo crisis, this work is a contemporary example of a mass based on the fifteenth century French song L'Homme Arme.
