Description:
Elgar - The Dream of Gerontius

Gloucester Choral Society - Concert



Saturday 13 October 7.00pm



Enjoy Elgar’s masterpiece The Dream of Gerontius, considered by many to be his finest choral work, in the atmospheric setting of Gloucester Cathedral. A setting of the poem by John Henry Newman, the work tells the story in beautiful poetry and music of a soul’s journey through death, and is exquisitely moving.



Elgar himself wrote this quotation at the end of his original manuscript:



This is the best of me; for the rest, I ate, and drank, and slept, loved and hated, like another: my life was as the vapour and is not; but this I saw and knew; this, if anything of mine, is worth your memory.



Gloucester Choral Society performs this wonderful work under the baton of renowned choral director Adrian Partington in the beautiful location of Gloucester Cathedral.
