  1. The Dream of Gerontius Op 38 - Sir Edward Elgar

Elgar’s famous ‘The Dream of Gerontius’ is one of the greatest English choral works ever composed. This large-scale work relates the journey of a man's soul from his deathbed to his judgment before God. It has so many memorable and brilliantly scored sections for chorus and orchestra, such as the tremendously dramatic Demons’ Chorus and the magnificent Choir of Angelicals’ ‘Praise to the Holiest in the height’. There is also much deeply moving music for a semi chorus and three solo singers – especially heroic music for Gerontius (tenor), radiant music for the Angel (contralto) and two powerful sections for the bass soloist. Elgar’s ‘The Dream of Gerontius’ provides the unique experience of a major choral work, which contains both outstanding drama and beauty.
