Title: The warring state of peace

Abstract: A German soldier, a tenor by pre-war profession, begins to sing "Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht" (English:"Silent Night"), accompanied by a fellow soldier's harmonica. As he belts out the next verse, a Scottish bagpipe interjects only to continue the carol. Soon, the song ends. Still wary of the other, the Scot plays the opening tune of "O Come, All Ye Faithful" (Latin:"Adeste Fidelsss"). An invitation has been extended. The German responds with an a cappella of the same opening. Across No Man's Land, a Scottish-German collaboration fills the air; a perfect ice breaker during winter in the trenches. At its centre, three lieutenants meet.
