"In a rapturous performance, by turns visceral and ethereal, the Mass was a firebomb of orchestral and human voices."

Karl Jenkins: The Armed Man. A Mass for Peace (Choral Suite)

5. Hymn Before Action
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.
