Karl Jenkins’ Benedictus is from The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace which was commissioned by the Royal Armouries Museum to commemorate the millennium.
This new publication makes the Benedictus available for performance as a separate work, with Piano accompaniment. The score includes the iconic introductory Cello solo part on its own page, although performance with Cello is optional. The edition is compatible with that in the complete Armed Man vocal score and therefore with the work’s scorings for Orchestra, Ensemble, Brass Band and Concert Band.
Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini. Hosanna in excelsis.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
