The Western Front, Christmas Eve, 1914. Out of the violence of
the Great War’s trenches comes a silence, then a song as a young
German soldier steps into no man’s land singing Stille Nacht.
Thus begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music and
peace. The extraordinary nine-man vocal ensemble Cantus and
its collaborators Theatre Latté Da bring this remarkable historical
event to life through new arrangements of European carols,
war-songs for a capella voices and excerpts from soldiers’ diaries.
