“The Armed Man” by Welsh composer, Karl Jenkins, was commissioned in 1999 by the UK's Museum of the Royal Armouries in Leeds to mark the new Millennium, to relate the futility of war and to signal a hope that the history of warfare worldwide would be countered with hopes for peace and reconciliation as the 21st century unfolds. The programme comes complete with DVD visual effects, a lone trumpeter playing 'The Last Post' and a prayer caller.

A choir of 100 voices from South Auckland Choral, Franklin Choir and Cantorum from Auckland, [conductor Iain Tetley] will be accompanied by the Papakura City Brass Band [conductor Adrian Raven] and organist Tim Noon. Soloists will sing the connecting themes between the magnificent choruses, relating the horrors of war and the pleas for peace and security. The work is being specially performed in the Hawkins Theatre as a tribute from South Auckland to the Anzac centenary and the fallen of the two World Wars.

“The Armed Man” will form the second half of the programme - the first half will include “Peace and War” by NZ composer Dr Vernon Griffiths, for band and choir, plus separate band numbers conducted by Adrian Raven.

"The Times“ London, described the performances as "A firebomb of orchestral and human voices." It invariably receives a standing ovation at the conclusion of the performance.
