2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the Christmas Truce of 1914, where opposing soldiers engaged in World War I combat laid down their arms and celebrated the Christmas holiday together. Combining fragments of Gustav Holst's "Mars, the Bringer of War" from The Planets with the beautiful carol "Silent Night" this musical study of dramatic contrasts, combined with the engaging story is sure to provide an awe-inspiring performance. Absolutely stunning! (2:45).
