The Armed Man -Jenkins November 5, 2011

Posted by joinchoir in Uncategorized.

Notice the multimedia production. Various scenes of armed men and warfare are shown on screens during the performance. The piece is based on an ancient French folk song that was popularly used in motive masses in early polyphony. The use of marching feet really sets the tone. Unfortunately the video only plays the first few minutes of the performance. The Armed Man is a Mass for Peace.
