Excerpts from Karl Jenkins “The Armed Man” and music by Goodall, Parry and Willcocks.

Someone once said I write spiritual music for secular people, and it was meant to be an insult. But for me that’s a compliment Karl Jenkins

100 years on from the Armistice of November 1918, which marked the end of the First World War, Exeter Festival Chorus commemorates this momentous historical event. Exeter Festival Chorus perform excerpts from Karl Jenkins’ compelling work, “The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace”, which depicts the horrors of war but urges ‘Better is peace…’

With leading British baritone, Roderick Williams OBE, and the evocative and rousing sound of the Royal Marines Band, Exeter Festival Chorus will take you through Advent to Christmas and the coming of the Messiah.
