Karl Jenkins’ popular and moving ‘The Armed Man, a Mass for Peace’, will be performed in Lincoln Cathedral at 7.30pm on Saturday October 25.

Lincoln Choral Society with the Lincolnshire Chamber Orchestra, fine soloists and members of the Neustadt Liedertafel choir, will be commemorating all the fallen in battle over the last years.

Other items will include the stirring Fanfare for the Common Man, and F S Kelly’s ‘In Memoriam Rupert Brooke’.

Conductor Neville Turner will also be in charge of ‘Hymn to the Fallen ‘from Elgar’s ‘ Spirit of England’.

This portion includes his most beautiful setting of ‘they shall not grow old’ and Neville will be conducting from a score once owned by Sir Henry Wood.

Members of LCS will then go to Germany to sing the piece with their twin choir and also present there will be members of Neustadt’s other twin town, Macon, creating a real international effort.

The concert will take place in the Nave and tickets range from £8 to £20 from Lincoln Minster Shop, 01522 561644, or at the door on the night.
