Notes & Reviews:

The Dream of Gerontius is widely regarded as Elgar's finest choral work, and some consider it his masterpiece. The work is coupled on this album with Elgar's Symphony no.1 making this a well-filled 2 SACD set. The Dream of Gerontius has not been released on SACD before, and is a must buy for an SACD aficionado.
