THE ARMED MAN is a powerful and compelling account of the descent into, and terrible consequences of war. Commissioned for the millennium by the Royal Armouries and dedicated to the victims of the Kosovo crises, this work isa contemporary example of a mass based on the 15th-century French song L'Homme Arme (The Armed Man). The complete work sets sacred and secular texts including Tennyson, Kipling, The Koran and the Hindu Mahabharata with the framework of the Christian mass. The press described the Mass as "a firebomb of orchestral and human voices" (The Times) that drew "prolonged shouts of approval from the audience"(The Independent). This suite of four mass movements and the Hymn Before Action arranged for SATB chorus and piano/organ is suitable as a concert item or within a liturgical setting and will make a stunning contemporary mass alternative. The complete work is also available on hire.
