Cantus and Theater Latte' Da Present: All Is Calm: the Christmas Truce of 1914; by Peter Rothstein, musical arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach

Julie Amacher hosts an uplifting musical drama about the surprising 1914 World War I Christmas Truce. Theater Latte' Da and Cantus, one of America's most accomplished male choirs, have created a profoundly moving new work of musical radio theater. Using the diary entries of soldiers and beautiful new arrangements of Christmas favorites, All is Calm tells both sides of the story, as men who had been trying to kill each other in the fields of France, spontaneously put down their guns, walked across no-man's land, and sang together.
