Peace pictures wanted for video

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the widely performed modern mass to peace, The Armed Man, composer Karl Jenkins wants your pictures of peace and tranquillity.

Randomly selected images of people, places and wildlife that distil this theme will be chosen for the official music video for the song Benedictus.

The song of thanksgiving for deliverance is one of 13 that make up The Armed Man. With words drawn from texts across the ages and the globe, Jenkins’ composition arcs through the romance of marching to war, the charge, the holocaust, through to the aftermath and ends with a song of hope and peace.

Benedictus is among the handful of songs from the traditional mass Jenkins included in The Armed Man.

A music video of the song from the 2018, Berlin-based production of The Armed Man, featuring cellist Valentino Worlitzsch, the World Peace Orchestra and a choir of more than 2000 from around the world knocking the face-melting chorus out of the park, can be viewed at https://tinyurl.com/y9w7wjsu
