“Edward Elgar’s remarkable setting of John Henry Newman’s The Dream of Gerontius displays an eclectic range of influences – from Wagner to Verdi – and yet achieves a dramatic and musical unity unsurpassed in his choral output. The soul’s journey, through death and judgement to purgatory with the promise of a final re-awakening to glory, are told here by a peerless trio of soloists alongside the BBC Concert Orchestra and the Philharmonia Chorus. Easter at King’s Artistic Director Stephen Cleobury conducts.”
