7. Karl Jenkins: The Armed Man
Welshman Karl Jenkins began his musical career as a jazz and rock saxophonist before moving onto composing for commercials. His big breakthrough was the bestselling Adiemus: Songs of Sanctuary. But with The Armed Man - A Mass for Peace, his music came of age. It was commissioned by the Royal Armouries Museum for the Millennium celebrations, and to mark the museum’s move from London to Leeds. And it was dedicated to victims of the crisis in Kosovo.
