Commissioned by the Royal Armouries to mark the transition from 1999 to 2000 The Armed Man: a Mass for Peace reflects on the passing of "the most war-torn and destructive century in human history" and looks forward in hope to a more peaceful future. Dedicated to the victims of the Kosovo conflict, whose tragedy was unfolding as it was being composed, it was first performed in 2000 by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, conducted by Jenkins himself.

We are delighted to have been invited by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to perform the work with them under the baton of guest conductor Adrian Partington in this matinée concert at the Derngate.
