The Armed Man – a mass for peace
March 16, 2019 @ 8:00 pm -9:30 pm
Seattle Choral Company and Brass Band Northwest under the direction of Freddie Coleman join forces to present The Armed Man – a mass for peace by Karl Jenkins. This hour long work is based on L’Homme armé, a secular melody that was used as the basis for numerous mass settings in the Renaissance. By combining texts from Jewish, Muslim and Christian traditions, Carl Jenkins transforms this music into a plea for world peace.
