This piece tells the story of the truce which occurred spontaneously on Christmas Eve 1914 in the trenches of the First World War. After some initial mood-setting with settings for choir and baritone of some Edward Thomas poetry, the piece takes the form of a narrative, spoken over orchestral accompaniment by a soldier who was there, called Tom. It tells how carols were sung by troops on both sides of the trenches that day.
