Elgar's massive but deeply personal work, based on a Victorian poem by Cardinal John Henry Newman, follows a devout, dying Everyman character ("Gerontius" is a name derived from "Old Man") on a journey through death to meet his Maker, before being taken to Purgatory with the promise of everlasting life and glory to come. The Dream of Gerontius contains Elgar's most sublime and evocative writing for orchestra and voice, and is his greatest compositional triumph.
