A recent exhaustive survey declared Sir Karl Jenkins to be the most-performed living composer in the world. His The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace alone has been performed over 2,000 times in 20 different countries since the CD was released, while his recorded output has resulted in 17 gold and platinum disc awards. In 2015, he became the first Welsh-born composer to receive a knighthood for services to composing and crossing musical genres.
"I adore Karl's compositions. From this quiet, gentle human being, comes the most amazing, haunting music, that is instantly recognizable, and loved across the world."
- Dame Kiri Te Kanawa
"Karl Jenkins is a rarity among contemporary composers, balancing popularity with innovation." - The Independent
