Elgar's oratorio 'The Dream of Gerontius' is performed by Thames Philharmonic Choir and Thames Festival Orchestra under John Bate, with Yvonne Howard (mezzo-soprano), Neil Jenkins (tenor) and Edward Grint (baritone).
(Elgar’s masterpiece broke new ground in terms of the English oratorio tradition when it appeared in 1900. Cardinal Newman’s poem depicts the death of a holy man and his soul’s journey to its climactic meeting with his Maker.)
