CANTUS "ALL IS CALM: THE CHRISTMAS TRUCE OF 1914"
By Peter Rothstein
With musical arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach
Sunday, December 7, 2014 at 7 p.m.
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.
Cantus and Theater Latté Da present All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 by Peter Rothstein, with musical arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach. Through new arrangements of European carols and war-songs for a capella voices, All Is Calm recalls the remarkable World War I truce between Allied Forces and German soldiers in no man's land on Christmas, 1914.
Acclaimed as “the premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States” (Fanfare), Cantus is committed to inspiring audiences with music performed at the highest level. Rehearsing and performing without a conductor or music director, the nine members of Cantus are renowned for adventurous programming spanning many periods and genres, including work commissioned specifically for the group.
ALL IS CALM was developed and produced By Cantus and Theater Latté Da in Minneapolis, Minnesota, December 2007.
