Elgar; The Dream of Gerontius
Alice Coote, soprano
Stuart Skelton, tenor
Alal Ewing, bass
BBC Symphony Chorus
Sir Edward Elgar's strong Roman Catholic faith drew him to a text by Cardinal Newman which explores the journey of a man's soul through death, divine judgement and Purgatory. It contains some of his greatest music, and this performance offers three of the work's finest interpreters and the BBC Symphony Chorus under the baton of a passionate Elgarian.
