Song from Vimy Memorial 2007 Rededication

Many posts have been made about the song that was performed at the Vimy 2007 Memorial Rededication this past Easter Monday. Although the fiddle piece was the work of Sierra Noble, the song itself (performed by the Confederation Youth Chorus and Susan Aglukark) was "I'm Dreaming of Home" (as noted here) , one of the hymns from the movie Joyeux Noel, about the Christmas eve in World War I, when the troops from both sides had their own truce.

As luck would have it, I have found a clip of it here.
