Bingham's The Christmas Truce In Glasgow

09/11/2012
Scottish Premiere by Glasgow Chamber Choir
Judith Bingham's ,The Christmas Truce, composed in 2003, movingly tells the story of the temporary armistice on Christmas Day 1914 in the trenches of northern France. Bingham combines texts from diaries, private letters and news reports, alongside German and English Christmas carols, into a haunting meditation on that extraordinary day.

On 8 December 2012, the Glasgow Chamber Choir and Amicus Orchestra conducted by Michael Bawtree give the Scottish premiere of the work. The performance will fit the setting of the Memorial Chapel of Glasgow University, itself built to commemorate members of the University killed in the Great War, perfectly.

GLASGOW UNIVERSITY MEMORIAL CHAPEL
University Avenue, Glasgow, G12 8QQ

Pre-concert talk: Judith Bingham will speak about The Christmas Truce at 6.45pm in the Chapel
