THE ARMED MAN ROYAL ALBERT HALL
Recently-knighted Sir Karl Jenkins returns to the Royal Albert Hall to conduct one of his best-loved works, The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace.
This popular choral/orchestral work was commissioned by the Royal Armouries Museum as part of the millennium celebrations and was given its world premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in April 2000. The resulting album has been in the classical chart for almost 700 weeks, cementing itself in the country’s consciousness.
