A new 2CD compilation featuring a selection of the most popular pieces by the nation's best-loved living composer, Karl Jenkins celebrating his 80th Birthday. It includes music from best-selling recordings Adiemus, The Armed Man, Requiem, Gloria, Stabat Mater, Palladio and One World as well as a special thank you message from the composer himself. Karl Jenkins, who was awarded a CBE in 2010, is widely recognised as the world’s most popular living composer following a recent poll by renowned cultural commentator Norman Lebrecht. The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace is his most performed work, having been performed over 1000 times since its world premiere at London’s Royal Albert Hall in April 2000. Commissioned jointly by The Royal Armouries and Classic FM, it was initially inspired by the Kosovan conflict, but the clear message of hope this work brings to so many resounds even stronger decades later.
