Michael Francis Conducts Elgar
Elgar said, "My idea is that there is music in the air, music all around us, the world is full of it and you simply take as much as you require." The Dream of Gerontius, Op. 38, is widely considered to be one of the greatest works for voices and orchestra. Elgar composed the piece to text from the poem by John Henry Newman to relate the journey of a pious man's soul after death. The piece is widely regarded as Elgar's finest choral work, and some consider it to be his masterpiece.
