Saturday 2nd April 2022, 7.30pm Holy Trinity Church, Guildford
In March 2020, we were less than a week away from performing this piece when the first national lockdown was announced. We were delighted finally to be able to perform it in the glorious setting of Holy Trinity Church on Guildford High Street.
This modern masterpiece by the Welsh composer Karl Jenkins has become a firm favourite with audiences and performers alike. Karl Jenkins is perhaps best known for “Adiemus” (originally written for a Delta Airlines TV advert). Adiemus led to a series of pieces in the same style which topped the album charts as “Songs of Sanctuary”.
The Armed Man is a mass, first performed at The Royal Albert Hall in 2000 and dedicated to the victims of the Kosovo crisis. The piece begins with the growing menace of a descent into war, interspersed with moments of reflection; shows the horrors that war brings; and ends with the hope for peace in a new millennium, when “sorrow, pain and death can be overcome”.
We were thrilled to be able to welcome a small (but perfectly formed) live audience once again to our Christmas concert, but we would have liked to welcome so many more. Fear not (said he)! This year we have recorded the concert for you to watch and listen to at your leisure.
Don’t forget we’re still supporting our charity of the year, Woking Street Angels and you can donate up to £10 at any time via text message. Please text the message WSA and the £ amount (e.g. WSA £5) to 70085.
This is a format we’re still working on, so apologies the spoken word parts of the performance are very quiet on the recording, but we hope you enjoy the music.
We’re back! After the success of our first ‘hybrid’ in-person and online concert (Broadway Revue) in November, we repeated a similar format for our annual Christmas Concert which took place on Wednesday 8th December 2021at 7.30pm, at Trinity Methodist Church in Woking.
We are once again supporting Woking Street Angels and you can donate up to £10 via text message, please text the message WSA and the £ amount (e.g. WSA £5) to 70085.
