The Armed Man

Concert in Oakham SUNDAY DECEMBER 9TH at 7.30PM

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.
