Christmas Truce 1914 – Len Ballantine



Using brass, choral and narration, CHRISTMAS TRUCE 1914 describes the devastating weeks leading up to the first Christmas of WWI. Even the hellish life of the trenches endured by the soldiers of both sides could not suppress the spontaneous pockets of ceasefire and fraternization which occurred in many places along the Western Front. The work was commissioned by the Hannaford Street Silver Band to commemorate the 100th anniversary of these remarkable events.
