The Armed Man

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Remembrance Day.


To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Remembrance Day, the Cradle Coast Orchestra and the Hellyer Community Choir have combined to present ‘The Armed Man’.

Composed by Welsh man Karl Jenkins, the piece was dedicated to victims of the Kosovo crisis.
It is an anti-war piece, based on the Catholic Mass, which Jenkins combines with other sources, principally the 15th Century folk song ‘L’homme arme’ in the first and last movements.
The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace premiered at the Royal Albert Hall, London on 25 April 2000.
