Karl Jenkins: Gods Of Olympus

Books | SATB, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes
Composer: Karl Jenkins
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
Gods of Olympus was commissioned by the Really Big Chorus for performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall in July 2012. In keeping with the spirit of the 2012 Olympiad the piece is based on ancient Greece, birthplace of the Olympic Games.

The movements are inspired by four of the twelve Olympians, the mythical Gods that dwelt on Mount Olympus: Zeus, Ruler of Olympus; Hermes, the Winged Messenger; Aphrodite, Goddess of Love; Hephaestus, Blacksmith & Fire-God.

The text uses Jenkins’ own ‘mythical’ language, first used in Adiemus. Performance materials are available on hire at www.boosey.com.
