Windsor & Eton Choral Society - Elgar "Dream of Gerontius"

Eton College School Hall, Berkshire, SL4 6DQ
Sat 23rd March 2019
Elgar’s famous ‘The Dream of Gerontius’ is one of the greatest English choral works ever composed.  This large-scale work has so many memorable sections in it featuring brilliantly scored items for chorus and orchestra, such as the tremendously dramatic Demons’ Chorus and the magnificent Choir of Angelicals’ ‘Praise to the Holiest in the height’. There is also much deeply moving music for a semi chorus and three solo singers – especially heroic music for Gerontius (tenor), radiant music for the Angel (contralto) and two powerful sections for the bass soloist.  Elgar’s ‘The Dream of Gerontius’ provides the unique experience of a major choral work, which contains both outstanding drama and beauty.
