SOLD OUT - Elgar: The Dream of Gerontius

gerontius image for Oxford Bach Choir concert at the Sheldonian Theatre


In the year that Oxford’s Cardinal Newman has been declared a saint, it’s entirely fitting that Oxford Bach Choir opens its season with a performance of Edward Elgar’s setting of his dramatic poem, The Dream of Gerontius.

Elgar conducted the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra’s very first symphonic concert in 1920, so we welcome them back to the Oxford Bach C for this performance.

The stellar line up soloists are Kathyrn Rudge, Mezzo-Soprano; Ed Lyon, Tenor; and Roderick Williams, Bass who has rightly become renowned for his performances of this work.
