The Armed Man (from The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace)

Series: Boosey & Hawkes Concert Band Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composer: Karl Jenkins Arranger: Robert Longfield

Level: 4

Welsh composer Karl Jenkins dedicated his landmark mass The Armed Man to the victims of the 1998-1999 war in Kosovo. More recently it is been associated with remembrances of 9/11. The French Renaissance song “L'homme armé” serves as the basis for the first movement of the mass, beautifully adapted here for standard concert band instrumentation. With its relentless pulse and haunting strains, this is a dramatically emotional and riveting work! Dur: c. 6:00
