A Major Contemporary Choral Work that Pleads for Peace May 2 2010
By Wade H. Rice Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The large choral group that I and my wife belong to just gave a performance of Jenkins' "The Armed Man", and our performance was one that will be long remembered not only by the chorus, but by those who attended. It is going to take a while for this work to make the rounds of most choirs and choruses to make a significant impact on its performers and listeners. "The Armed Man" is the one contemporary choral work that has had a major impact on me, both emotionally and spiritually. The movements of Jenkins's work gradually grow in intensity and impact to impress performers and listeners of the horrors of war, and why all men need to work for peace instead of trying to impose their values and beliefs on people of different cultures and nationalities. Some of the texts chosen are quite graphic as well as the music accompanying them. Despite the higher cost to purchase copies of this significant work, it is worth it for all choral organizations to perform. Highly recommended, despite the extra cost!The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace
Imitation Music May 25 2014
By Michael Morse - Published on Amazon.com
Jenkins is a genius -- of business. The piece is expertly calculated to entice audiences into shallow pseudo-feeling, much in the manner of the movie scores from which it so liberally steals (e.g., Batman, cathedral scene). The musical development is minimal to non-existent, replaced by a grotesque mania for repetition. Everything, large and small, happens twice at least, without musical rhyme or reason. As salesmanship, however, that's first-rate, making sure no customer, no matter disinterested or bored, can possibly lose track of the trite, flashy, pointless sound effects.
That such sure-footed nihilism is yoked to a mass on the horrors of war is an amoral atrocity, on the order of having Madonna sing love songs. That so cynical a take of these profound matters could achieve the success it has is a sad sign of how little we understand compassion.

This is a fabulous piece / peace of music to sing and the message truly resonates. I would highly recommend this to choirs.
