Karl Jenkins - Motets

Karl Jenkins' greatest music reinterpreted for a capella choir. John Suchet's Album of the Week, 5 May 2014.

This album of 19 compositions by Karl Jenkins features new arrangements of some of the composer's best-known works - including The Armed Man, Gloria and The Peacemakers.

Hearing Jenkins' compositions in a capella form makes for a much more intimate and emotional experience than usual, exposing the ethereal simplicity of his work.

All of the pieces are performed with beautiful control and tone by Polyphony directed by Stephen Layton, and immaculately recorded.
