For our first concert in 2024, Victoria Chorale will be performing The Armed Man : A Mass for Peace by Karl Jenkins on Saturday May 18 2024 at 5pm St Paul's Cathedral.
Karl Jenkins is among the most performed living composers. The Armed Man makes a political, as well as a musical, statement, as it was written in the shadow of the Kosovo War, and is thus so relevant to our world at present. It's a melodic, thrilling piece of music, starting with the beginnings of war, followed by faith to see us safely through war, to the bloody reality of war, its devastating aftermath, and the realisation that Better is Peace. There is a poignant reflection in the memorable Benedictus.
