The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins 10th November 2018:

Karl Jenkins ‘The Armed Man ~ A Mass for Peace’

Sing with Knaresborough Choral Society

on the Centenary of the eve of Armistice Day


Knaresborough Choral Society would like to offer the opportunity to experienced singers to perform ‘The Armed Man’ with us at St Peter’s Church, Harrogate on the very special occasion of the centenary of the eve of Armistice Day on 10 November 2018.

We would particularly welcome applications from 1st sopranos, tenors and basses.

We are a choir of some 70 members and are looking to perform this special piece with 100 voices so places are limited.

There are two options – to sing in ‘The Armed Man’ only (second half of the concert), or to sing in the full programme:

Elgar - ‘For the Fallen’ (from ‘Spirit of England’)

Mendelssohn - ‘Hear my prayer’

Brahms  - ‘How lovely are Thy dwellings’

Karl Jenkins - ‘The Armed Man’

If you have previously sung ‘The Armed Man’ you would need to attend these rehearsals:

Thursday 1 November (Gracious Street Methodist Church, Knaresborough)

Thursday 8 November (ditto)

Final rehearsal on the afternoon of Saturday 10 November (St Peter’s Church, Harrogate)


If you would like to sing in the full programme, you would need to attend a minimum of four rehearsals in September/October in addition to the November rehearsals above.  All take place on Thursday evenings between 7.30 -9.30pm in the Church on Gracious Street, Knaresborough

September 6, 13,27   October 4,11,18,25

Experienced singers who are familiar with the full programme may be able to take part with fewer rehearsals at the discretion of our musical director.

We require a pre-paid fee of £20 to take part (Please do not send any money with your application form – further instructions will be given later regarding payment).  A £5 returnable cash deposit is also payable for music hire.

Application forms can be submitted on the website www.knaresboroughchoralsociety.com on the page ‘Upcoming Events’ or a hard copy can be obtained from Art in the Mill, Green Dragon Yard, off Castlegate, Knaresborough HG5 8AU (tel. 01423 862963)
