All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 (2008)

“The singing is absolutely top-notch, and the spoken parts are equally eloquent and moving, and are perfectly juxtaposed with and often simultaneously performed with the music.”
– Classics Today

The Western Front, Christmas, 1914. Out of the violence comes a silence, then a song. A young German soldier steps into No Man’s Land singing Stille Nacht (Silent Night). Thus begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, peace. Re-live this remarkable true story from WWI through the words and songs of the men who lived it. The original cast recording from the highly acclaimed collaboration between Cantus and Theater Latté Da is now available. Enjoy this radio musical drama for holiday seasons to come. By Peter Rothstein, with musical arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach.
