Musicians, Theorists, and Historians Uncover the Truth in Art

Imagine yourself huddled into a muddy trench on the western front with the rest of your bedraggled platoon. It’s been a long, grueling year fighting for your life in a war that seems to have no meaning, but you and your brothers are aiming to lift each other spirits tonight – and perhaps pester the Germans that can certainly hear you across the artillery-ploughed field.  With a bit of amateur conducting by a young officer, you all break into a chorus of Land of Hope and Glory to fill the night with song.
