One of the great favourites of the entire choral-orchestral repertoire, 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. Soloists, choir and orchestra are fused into an overall symphonic structure, which is expressed in richly textured, moving and imaginative music.
