Product Description

Product Description

The Peacemakers, a brand new choral work composed by Karl Jenkins and a sequel to his best-selling work The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace, offers inspiration and solace for a time in need of both. It features texts from some of the greatest peacemakers throughout history, including Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Anne Frank and Mother Teresa, as well as words from the Bible and the Qur an with some new text specially written by Terry Waite.

The London Symphony Orchestra is joined by different vocal forces including Rundfunkchor Berlin, the City of Birmingham Youth Chorus, and the 1000-strong 'The Really Big Chorus' made up of members of UK choirs from across the country brought together in one day, in one studio, to contribute to two movements on the album. Guest artists include violinist Chloë Hanslip, soprano Lucy Crowe, Davy Spillane on Uilleann pipes, Indian bansuri (ethnic flute) player Ashwin Srinivasan and jazz greats Nigel Hitchcock and Laurence Cottle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deeply Affecting 13 April 2012
By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
It does not surprise people were in tears when this music was performed. Intensely moving, it pays tribute to all those who strive to bring peace to a troubled world.

In turns joyous and meditative, but always inspirational, it ranges from the simplicity of one voice to the grandeur of a great many - delving into past and present, into different religions and cultures. Saluted are the unnamed masses who perish in pursuit of peace, as well as the famous names one would expect (St. Francis of Assisi, Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela). How stirring to see Anne Frank included - a life so short, impact everlasting.

World wide peace possible? Not a chance, as Karl Jenkins himself acknowledges. All the more reason to applaud the efforts of those who try. Karl Jenkins ranks high amongst them, these harmonies an attempt to create harmony.

One feels very humble in such company. And uplifted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best work since 'The Armed Man' 26 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
I'm pleased to say The Peacemakers lives up to 'The Armed Man: A Mass For Peace'. It really is a beautiful album filled with inspirational text & music.

A must have for any Karl Jenkins fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peacemakers is another Karl Jenkins classic 31 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Peacemakers is majestic, a masterful mix of the uplifting, melancholic and magnificent. Carefully crafted to include evocative sounds and words from world music and literature it is a thoughtful and powerful piece of work.

Solitude (Chloe Hanslip, Violin) fits well with the pure force of energy produced by The Really Big Chorus, who appear on just two of the tracks. A thousand voices singing in unison gives a real WOW factor - the 'Thousang sound' is unforgettable. It's like being a part of the crowd singing 'Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau' at the Millennium Stadium.
Peacemakers is another Karl Jenkins classic that will be performed across the world for years to come. I would strongly recommend it to all Jenkofiles.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Peacemakers 20 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I would have liked to have given three and a half stars but couldn't.
Being an MD of two Choral Societies I have conducted both his Armed Man and Stabat Mater.
Personally I found the latter more inspiring than the former.
The Peacemakers - although, clearly, I haven't had a chance to conduct yet, is an interesting work - very typically Jenkins - but not with quite the same expanse of melodies and harmonies that the other two have.
It seems to me to be a little "bitty" in parts with a lot of "optional" extras a choir might, or might not, either want to or be able to incorporate.
I'm sure I will conduct it some time in the future since one of my choirs loves singing Jenkin's music and then, perhaps, when I have had a chance to learn it thoroughly it might grow on me and become as wonderful as the other two of his works.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only for the fans.....of yawning 1 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD
Karl Jenkins is a populistic composer. But, it's not a bad thing to compose music that speaks to the hearts of many, quite the opposite. And there's no denying that Jenkins' music in many ways can drive many towards classical music and choir singing. Usually, this is done with thick, yet emotional harmonies and driving beats, but this time he has recycled a bit too much of his old stuff, and generally failed to create anything remotely interesting. There are a few high points where Jenkins' qualities shine through - "A Meditation" is certainly worth quite a few listens - but generally it's Jenkins on autopilot, with the emotion dial set to "none".

I guess the live experience can be quite different, but to just listen to it is....really...bo...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
