Oakham Choral Society reflects on the World War I centenary with a performance Karl Jenkins’ moving and hugely popular composition, The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace. The work was written as a condemnation of war and fuses music and text from many different cultures, eras and religions, resulting in a unique and poignant work. Alongside this, talented music scholars from Oakham School, Jessica Carr and Grace Muris, will perform Classical era solo works with the orchestra.
