Based on the famous poem of Cardinal Newman, Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius follows the journey of a sick old man through death, divine judgement and finally towards redemption.The piece has a rich Wagnerian style combined with emotional energy - Elgar uses musical motifs to provide a heart-rending expression of anguish and the consciousness of sin, juxtaposed with lyrical passages of tenderness and hope.  Like his Enigma Variations, Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius has become a much-loved national treasure.
