The Armed Man

Kark Jenkins

Friday evening Don and I had the privilege of attending a performance of The Armed Man:  A Mass For Peace by Karl Jenkins’.  More information can be found here.

It included a live orchestra, full chorus and dance by Griffin Choral Arts and Griffin Ballet Theatre.  There were also projections of images from war film footage.  The Armed Man has become an extremely popular piece since its premiere at Royal Albert Hall in London in April 2000 and has been performed by over 800 choral groups around the world.

Many reviews on Amazon describe the CD (shown above) as powerful and accessible classical music.  Although the Griffin performance was only two nights, if you ever have an opportunity to see this performed elsewhere, it is well worth your time.
