The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace - Jenkins produces a classical-ethnic-ecclesiastic combination with dramatic results. The composition uses lyrics from classic poets, biblical verses, the traditional mass, as well as from Muslim, Hindu, and Japanese sources.

The imagery of this song cycle cannot be separated from world events. Dedicated to the victims of the Kosovo tragedy, this composition rings true once again and the incorporation of both Christian and Muslim texts and melodies provide a powerful commentary on the disagreements between followers of these and other faiths.
