Written on: 05/04/2009

Karl Jenkins, Jenkins: The Armed Man - A Mass For Peace is a good choral piece with some nice touches, it is especially good with an orchestra. However I don't feel it is well balanced as a lot of the movements are too similar; although the individual movements are wonderful. I personally like The first (title) movement, Bloody Men, Charge and Hymn before action… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/09/2008

What is it about 'Benedictus' that reduces me to tears every time I hear it? It is quite simply one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written. It doesn't matter that I've a degree in music production or that anyone else on this site has any sort of qualifications of any kind. Any human ear can hear the sweeping beauty of this piece. The only other piece written that can touch Benedictus is Canteloube's 'Bailero', the open air performance by Joanne Wilson-Smith. I've played this a… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/01/2008 by Kim Batteau (1 review written)

I know classical music very well, play the violin (was a student of Broadus Earl), have sung as a young person in many choirs, and have attended hundreds of concerts ranging from the BSO to the Concertgebouworkest. I predict that Jenkins will be called one of the greatest composers of the 21rst century… Read Full Review

The sound brings me in another time in the past, every music give me the sensation of war or peace, everything is so accurate, even the choice of a track sung in Arabic language, meaning of multi-religion language, absolutely astonishing.If you love music and especially sacred music, buy it. It's worth all the money… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/12/2006 by Johntenor (1 review written)

I was priveleged to be able to take part in a recent performance as a choir member. This is the most moving work I have ever sung. The work has stirring, dramatic movements and some poignant, beautiful melodies. I really had to take a grip on myself in the performance to be able to sing the last movement. Even hearing an excerpt from the cello solo as background to a short wildlife documentary on TV made the tears well up… Read Full Review

Karl Jenkins, Jenkins: The Armed Man - A Mass For Peace - This starts with men marching to war and after the pre-battle rituals the horror of burning men is depicted in the battles and peace triumphantly follows.
This piece should be played more often, I would certainly go to a performance. A truly modern classic… Read Full Review
