Amicus and Glasgow Chamber Choir collaborated for the first time for a concert in the majestic surrounds of Glasgow University Memorial Chapel.

The Christmas Truce, composed in 2003, tells the moving story of the unofficial and temporary ceasefire on Christmas Day 1914 in the trenches of northern France. The music combines texts from diaries, letters and news reports, alongside German and English Christmas carols to create a haunting reflection on that extraordinary day.

The Glasgow University Memorial Chapel was itself built to commemorate those members of the university who fell during the Great War.

Judith Bingham attended this Scottish premiere of The Christmas Truce.
