Takach, is a true symphonic drama in which 11 members from the Cantari Men’s Ensemble sings songs of the times — traditional ballads, patriotic ditties, marching songs, and Christmas hymns and carols — all a cappella, wearing the World War I uniforms of both sides as they also recite pertinent bits of poetry, excerpts from the letters and dispatches, even inscriptions from grave markers.
