Workshop - Dream of Gerontius - Elgar

Windsor Parish Church
Dream of Gerontius - Elgar
Saturday, 23 March 2019, 7:30 pm
Eton College School Hall
Elgar’s famous ‘The Dream of Gerontius’ is one of the greatest English choral works ever composed.  This large-scale work has so many memorable sections in it featuring brilliantly scored items for chorus and orchestra, such as the tremendously dramatic Demons’ Chorus and the magnificent Choir of Angelicals’ ‘Praise to the Holiest in the height’. There is also much deeply moving music for a semi chorus and three solo singers – especially heroic music for Gerontius (tenor), radiant music for the Angel (contralto) and two powerful sections for the bass soloist.  Elgar’s ‘The Dream of Gerontius’ provides the unique experience of a major choral work, which contains both outstanding drama and beauty.

Requiem - Verdi
Saturday, 28 September 2019, 7:30 pm
Eton College School Hall
Verdi’s Requiem is one of the most thrilling choral masterpieces ever composed.   This great work appeared towards the end of Verdi’s life at a time when he had already created such famous operas as ‘Aida’, ‘Il Trovatore’ and ‘La Traviata,   Verdi’s unique musical creation of the Requiem provides strong dramatic music, which is brilliantly contrasted with magical sections of music with a quieter nature.    The ‘Dies irae’ and ‘Tuba mirum’ are two of the most exciting sections of choral music ever composed and there are many more different parts of the score featuring glorious choral music alongside wonderfully varied radiant and dramatic music for the four solo singers.   Verdi’s outstanding setting of the Requiem Mass is a unique masterpiece.
