Inspired by the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, Armistice: the Journey Home explores timeless themes of longing, loss, love, and the search for peace in the wake of catastrophe. Musical selections range from Schubert's Der Wanderer, to Vaughan Williams' Songs of Travel, to Ives' They Are There, as well as lesser known works, including two songs by German composer Rudi Stephan, who was killed in the war.
