Join LCS, The Bromley Boy Singers, Forest Philharmonic Orchestra, and three outstanding soloists for a performance of Elgar’s masterpiece, The Dream of Gerontius. This tale of a dying man’s journey to the afterlife includes encounters with angels and demons, a thunderous glimpse of God and a tranquil bathe in the lake of Purgatory.
The subject matter gave Elgar the scope to produce some of his most inspirational and colourful music, in turns dramatic, poignant and sublimely peaceful, culminating in a magical finale as the voice of an angel floats over the double choir and boy treble ‘angelicals’.
