Voices from No Mans Land

One hundred years ago two armies found themselves on opposite sides of the front line in a war that was meant to be over by Christmas.  Through tobacco, football and song many put down their weapons on Christmas Eve, sharing in a common humanity we now call the ‘Christmas truce’.

The Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival recruited a chorus of 100 male voices to mark the centenary of the truce with a stirring new commission from composer Lucy Pankhurst, directed by conductor Howard Moody. 

Voices From No Man’s Land was performed in Salisbury Cathedral Cloisters on 23 May 2014. Watch the final few minutes here.
