Christmas in the Trenches – Christmas Truce of 1914

The following song is from a practice session I recorded of The Secret Commonwealth doing a rendition of John McCutcheon’s Christmas in the Trenches. The song is based on an unexpected and unofficial truce made by the common fighting men on both sides and not the higher ups who frowned on such things.

As I said, it’s a practice session so it might be a little rough and there’s a cough or two.

The singer is Don Clark
