Christmas Truce of 1914 Re-enactment

In the fall of 2014, the Canadian Aviation Museum invited local Ottawa choirs to participate in a musical event to commemorate that brief moment in time when, between Christmas and New Year 1914-1915, there was a momentary truce in the fighting of the first World War. On Jan 2, 2015 the choirs were the Ottawa Choral Society and the Bytown Voices. The Ottawa Choral Society representing the English troops sang in English, French and Latin; the Bytown voices, representing the German troops, sang in German. Each choir sang three carols and slowly the singers move forward and exchange symbolic gifts in 'no-man's land".  And then the firing resumes.
