About

For their third release on Signum Classics, David Temple and Hertfordshire Chorus present Karl Jenkinsís The Armed Man.

This is the first recording of the ensemble version of The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace. It was conceived by the composer as an alternative where performances of the full symphonic version are not possible.

The work loses none of its impact, retaining the same big sound with driving rhythms, thundering climaxes, fearful moments and tender, memorable melodies.

This recording features celebrated mezzo-soprano Kathryn Rudge as well as muezzin Osama Kiwan and cellist Jamal Aliyev.

Hertfordshire Chorus is one of the UKís finest symphonic choruses and has a reputation for high-quality and passionate singing, commissioning new music, performing challenging and often rarely-heard pieces as well as much-loved and well-known works.

It is at home in styles from the major classical works to jazz, music theatre, games music, rock and all points in between. David Temple MBE, one of the leading choral conductors in the country, has been its Musical Director since 2000.
