Compositions
Karl Jenkins

(b. 1944)
Karl Jenkins is the composer of the million-selling album Adiemus: Songs of Sanctuary. He trained as a classical musician at Cardiff University and Royal Academy of Music in London. In the 1970s he played with Ronnie Scott's jazz band and jazz-rock fusion band Soft Machine. Jenkins topped the record charts with Adiemus: Songs of Sanctuary, which hauntingly evokes choral and world music. The sequels to Adiemus: Cantata Mundi and Adiemus: Dances of Time also rapidly topped the charts. His music is widely familiar through advertising usage, including Adiemus for Delta Air Lines and Palladio for the De Beers Diamond campaign. Karl Jenkins recent works have included his 'Mass for Peace' The Armed Man, Requiem and Stabat Mater which have rapidly entered the repertoire of choral groups worldwide, and the violin concerto Sariki.
