Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius

Dream of Gerontius

Saturday 24 June at 7.30pm, Colston Hall

Considered one of the greatest pieces ever written for chorus and orchestra, The Dream of Gerontius is Elgar’s masterpiece about life, death and one man’s journey into the afterlife. On a grand scale, the music vividly describes moments of exhilaration and terror, as flights of angels sing ecstatic choruses of praise.

Staged as the highlight of City of Bristol Choir’s 25th anniversary season, the 100 strong choir joins forces with Exultate Singers, the tenor Peter Auty, soprano Jennifer Johnston, bass Martin Le Poidevin and professional orchestra the Bristol Ensemble.
