Concert in Oakham SUNDAY DECEMBER 9TH at 7.30PM
Oakham School Chapel.
The Armed Man A mass for peace by Karl Jenkins
Performed by Oakham choral society; this is a modern work written in 2000 to mark the end of the war in Kosovo. It is a fitting end to this centenary year of the end of the Great War.
If you do not like choral works, this is a bit different. Some beautiful harmonies with exciting use of drums and brass instruments to paint a musical picture of the build up t o battle , the horrors of battle and its aftermath with a plea for peace.
It is worth a listen .
Tickets available from Walkers Bookshop ( Oakham ) or on the door on the night.
