Adrian Thompson Gerontius

To celebrate their 75th Anniversary Season, the Buxton Musical Society perform that great classic of English choral music, The Dream of Gerontius by Edward Elgar.
The work is a powerful setting of the poem by Cardinal Newman that describes the journey of a recently departed soul towards heaven. An enhanced chorus including some guest singers from far and wide will be joined by the Orchestra of Buxton Musical Society and a superb line-up of internationally-known soloists.
