Wells Cathedral Oratorio Society perform Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius
The Dream of Gerontius by Edward Elgar 7pm Saturday 23rd March Join us for an unforgettable evening of musical brilliance as we present Elgar's 'The Dream of Gerontius’. Many consider this epic choral work to be Elgar’s greatest single composition. Elgar integrated orchestral and vocal textures, utilising the semi-chorus very tellingly to provide contrasts of choral sonority and in this late-Romantic, post-Wagnerian era he uses leitmotifs to unify the work and evoke atmosphere. Don't miss this timeless work showcasing Elgar's genius in capturing the human essence and the mysteries of life and death inspired by a poem by Cardinal Newman.
