 Fabulous December 15, 2011 By marina s. (Seattle, WA) See All My Reviews "Mix some old and some new texts, from various religious and secular sources, with a fount of musical genius and a vision for peace, and you get the "L'homme Arme" (The Armed Man) - a sublime treatment of war and peace by Karl Jenkins. If you think contemporary classical music can't be fresh and yet emotionally powerful, you need to experience this mass." Report Abuse
