Karl Jenkins' The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace

Mount Kelly Choral Society and Orchestra

Conductor: Dan Robson

We will be performing Karl Jenkins' most popular work in this, the year of his 80th birthday. It is in many ways a call for peace in times of war, and has several movements which are settings of texts from the Catholic Mass. It also uses the 15th-century folk song "L'homme armé" which featured in choral works by Josquin des Prez and Francisco Guerrero, amongst others, as well as texts from more modern authors including Rudyard Kipling. Accompanied by wind, brass, keyboards and percussion, this promises to be an exciting and moving concert.

Tickets: £14 TicketSource ( or Bookstop in Tavistock; £15 cash on door. Under-18s free.
