THE DREAM OF GERONTIUS
4 July 2020, 7:30pm
Conductor: Richard Pearce
City of Southampton Orchestra join Romsey Choral Society for a performance of Elgar's finest choral work The Dream of Gerontius.
Elgar sets Cardinal Newman's poem telling the story of a soul's journey through death. Full of achingly beautiful music, on his journey the soul encounters angels, demons, and finally glimpses God and is judged in a moment.
