The Peacemakers

Karl Jenkins conducts his latest creation scored for orchestra, soprano solo and SATB chorus. The Peacemakers sets words of peace from iconic world-changing figures such as Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King, along with other inspirational quotations of Mother Teresa, Albert Schweitzer, Anne Frank and the Dalai Lama. Also included are religious texts from the Bible, the Qur’an, St Francis of Assisi and Baha u allah, and the poetry of Shelly, Malory, Terry Waite and Carol Barratt.

One line from the Persian mystic poet Rumi sums up the ethos of the work: ‘All religions, all singing one song: Peace be with you.’

VIP Ticket includes an after concert reception with Karl Jenkins.
