Christmas Concert – All Is Calm, All Is Bright

Categories: News

At 8 p.m. on Saturday, December 13th, the Broad Cove Chorale, under the direction of Margo Euler of Hingham, will present a narrated concert, “All is Calm, All is Bright,” which will retell the extraordinary story of the World War I “Christmas Truce,” when British, French and German troops ceased fighting on Christmas Eve, 1914, and sang carols and exchanged gifts with each other. This is the centennial remembrance of that event. Michael Theobald will narrate, drawing on the recollections of soldiers who participated in the short-lived truce, the audience will sing the actual carols sung by the soldiers, and the chorus will provide a musical background. The concert is open to parishioners and members of the general public. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased at the door. A portion of the revenue from the concert will benefit the Diane Edson Fund of the Wellspring Multi-Service Center in Hull, which provides relief to people in crisis on the South Shore.
