Sir Karl Jenkins, the most performed living composer, is celebrating his 75th birthday with a brand-new album and a host of reissues from his immensely popular catalogue – all now available on Decca Records.

It has been performed over 2500 times since its premiere in 1999, which equates to more than 2 performances a week! It has also been in the UK classical artist chart for nearly 800 weeks.

"In a rapturous performance, by turns visceral and ethereal, the Mass was a firebomb of orchestral and human voices.“ - The Times
