The World's Greatest Music
Since his childhood days as a choirboy, Aled Jones has always loved choral music. So every Sunday on Classic FM, he invites you to be spiritually uplifted by his Choral Classic. Find out more about the pieces here and reflect on a stunning photo as you listen.
'The Armed Man', subtitled 'A Mass for Peace', was dedicated to victims of the Kosovo crisis. Like Britten's 'War Requiem' before it, it is essentially an anti-war piece and is based on the Catholic Mass, which Jenkins combines with other sources.
