Remember the Christmas of 1914


Christmas is a holiday that brings people together. Families gather to exchange gifts and share lunch, volunteers help those in need, lonely individual meet and socialise. On December 25th 1914, warring German and British troops stepped out into No Man's Land - a place where they would usually be blown to pieces - to play football, exchange gifts, eat, sing carols, and respectfully bury their dead.

To commemorate the centenary anniversary of this event, the Orlando Chamber Choir are holding a concert at St James's Church in Sussex Gardens on the 11th December, to give readings and sing carols sung during the 1914 Christmas Truce. Amongst these are Come Let us all Sweet Carols Sing, Good Christian Men Rejoice, Silent Night, O Come all ye Faithful, Ding Dong Merrily on High, and many more.

Founded in 1994, the Orlando Chamber Choir specialises in Renaissance and Baroque music. The concert begins at 7.45pm, directed by Will Dawes. Although there is no set admission price, the donation suggestion is 14.
