In The Dream of Gerontius Elgar provides an epic musical setting for the
journey of a pious man’s soul from his deathbed to his judgement before God.
Elgar famously added John Ruskin’s words “This is the best of me…” to
the score and many would go further: Elgar’s biographer, the late Michael
Kennedy, described Gerontius as “unquestionably the greatest British work in
the oratorio form”.
Our professional chorus and orchestra are joined by an outstanding team of
young soloists, each of whom has a growing reputation on the concert and
opera stage and in the recording studio.
