"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."
