Cantus: "All is Calm"
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.
