Synopsis

Album Description
"[Bryn Terfel is] a voice in a billion." -- The Times "Mark Elder's interpretation with the Hallé orchestra and choir evaded characterization, though he stamps his dramatic instincts all over the piece. It is either a religious tone poem or a spiritual opera, either way the effect is frequently cataclysmic." -- The Guardian Elgar's late masterpiece is an extraordinary work full of drama and passion alongside exquisite music of sublime delicacy. It is a moving expression of the composer's unorthodox religious faith and a poignant reflection on a man's journey through death, depicted in striking writing for choir, orchestra, and soloists.
