‘The Armed Man’ - a Mass for peace at the Holy Trinity

The Harmonics choir directed by Philip Borge, on Monday performed 'The Armed Man' at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity as part of the Armistice commemorations. 

The Armed Man is a Mass by Welsh composer Karl Jenkins, subtitled "A Mass for Peace". The piece was originally dedicated to victims of the Kosovo crisis.

It is essentially an anti-war piece and is based on the Catholic Mass, which Jenkins combines with other sources, principally the 15th-century folk song "L'homme armé" in the first and last movements.

This is the first time this work has been performed in Gibraltar.
