Description

If ordering more than 10 copies, please call us on +44 (0)1284 725725 to check availability.

A powerful and compelling account of the descent into, and consquences of, war, commissioned by the British Armouries and dedicated to the victims of the Kosovo conflict. Using the basis of a Christian Mass (Requiem), Karl Jenkins has set both secular and sacred texts, inspired and guided by the 15th-century French song L'Homme Arme, to create a major and unsettling choral work that raises questions and provokes poignant reflection. This full vocal score features a Piano reduction for rehearsals.

Rating Review
Customer Rating I bought this because I just love the music and wanted to play it on the flute. The score is comprehensive and well laid out. My favourite pieces are Agnus Dei and Benedictus. I originally bought the CD because I heard Benedictus on the car radio, and had to pull over because it was so beautiful!
The only slight drawback is the tight binding which makes it difficult to play & turn the pages, but I've got over that by getting my daughter to be my page turner!

Customer Rating Very good, but needs experienced singers and player. It is close to the CD in effect, although there are limitations on a small organ.

Customer Rating I bought 1 copy of this because I wanted to play the cello part in Benedictus all be it on a baritone with organ accomp. However, I soon returned for another copy for the orangist as he was blown away by it. The score is excellant and it is a pleasure to sing the bass part to the CD recording. Top score and top music. Next step is to convince the choir to buy scores and perform some of it.

Customer Rating Very pleased with my purchase. I am very new to choral singing so the edition suits me fine. Love Karl Jenkins and have had a CD of this work for years. Very impressed with service from Musicroom.

Customer Rating I already have the disc for The Armed Man and was very happy to be able to buy the music score. Even though I'm no longer a member of a choir, I still like to be able to sing along with a choral piece (though my neighbours might not agree!), so I am very happy with this score.
