Karl Jenkins – WALES

Karl Jenkins is one of the most performed living composers in the world. For our CD we are thrilled that he has made a new arrangement of his HEALING LIGHT to be recorded with some exclusive Sony Artists. He conducted our opening performance in Berlin for the 100th anniversary the end of the First World War under the patronage of the German UNESCO Commission. 2,000 singers from over 30 countries came together to sing for peace, performing The Armed Man.

He has created many works. The Armed Man: A Mass For Peace alone has been performed over 2000 times in 20 different countries since the CD was released while his recorded output has resulted in seventeen gold and platinum disc awards.

His style and integrity has transcended musical boundaries encompassing jazz-rock with Soft Machine, the global ‘crossover’ phenomenon Adiemus, soundtracks for Levis and British Airways, while stopping off along the way to score a Kiefer Sutherland movie, be a castaway on BBC “Desert Island Discs”, be featured by Melvyn Bragg on the ITV seminal South Bank Show and be awarded the Freedom of the City of London.

In 2015 he was confirmed as the most popular living composer in Classic FM’s ‘Ultimate Hall of Fame’ and holds the Classic FM ‘Red f’ award for ‘outstanding service to classical music’. He was awarded a Knighthood in the 2015 Queen’s Birthday Honours for “services to composing and crossing musical genres” and his autobiography Still with the Music was published by Elliott & Thompson. His music is published exclusively by Boosey & Hawkes.
