Peak Moment 212 (updated): "This is a very important piece of music, a very powerful piece of music," says Ken Hardin, conductor of Sierra Master Chorale. In advance of their performances on May 17 and 20, 2012, he provides a musical guided tour of this contemporary work by Karl Jenkins, commissioned by the Royal Armouries Museum for their Millennium celebrations. Although outside of Peak Moment TV's normal scope, this music can move us beyond our heads and into our hearts. With texts drawn from many continents, and musical idioms from the middle ages to modern, this music is challenging, moving, inspiring, disturbing, and uplifting. As one chorister notes, "It's like nothing I've ever done musically."
