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.

The Very Best of Karl Jenkins presents a selection of the most popular pieces by the UK's best-loved living composer Karl Jenkins. The set includes music from best-selling recordings Adiemus, The Armed Man, Requiem, Gloria, Stabat Mater, Palladio, Stella Natalis and Quirk. Karl Jenkins, who was awarded a CBE in 2010, is widely recognized as the world's most popular living composer following a recent poll by renowned cultural commentator Norman Lebrecht.

Born in Wales, Karl Jenkins studied the oboe and graduated from Cardiff University, followed by post-graduate studies at London's Royal College of Music. Having been a member of the bands Nucleus and Soft Machine, his passion for Jazz led him to composition. Classically trained, but drawing on a diverse range of global influences, his composing style has transcended musical boundaries.
