One World (CD)
One World, British composer Karl Jenkins’s new work, was commissioned by the World Choir for Peace.
One World deals with a fractured world (populist governments, plagues, climate change, human trafficking, disrespect for basic human rights, terrorism, war) and heralds a vision of a peaceful and egalitarian planet. Here, the World Choir for Peace is joined by the World Orchestra for Peace and the Stay At Home Choir and uses texts from the Bible, the Hindu Gayatri Mantra as well as the poetry of Percy Bysshe Shelley, Frances Harper, Kahlil Gibran and Carol Barratt.
