Album information

“This is the best of me,” wrote Elgar in 1900 on completing his monumental ‘Dream of Gerontius.’ Now, more than a century later, this choral masterpiece is available for the first time on Super Audio CD

Telling this story of the journey of a dying man’s soul into the afterlife, are the voices of Peter Auty, one of Britain’s leading tenors, Michelle Breedt, considered one of the leading mezzo sopranos of her generation and john Hancock, acclaimed for his refined vocalism and theatrical versatility.

Edo de Waart conducts the Royal Flemish Philharmonic in this album that is sure to remain on the shelf of any connoisseur.
