An epic event for Canterbury Choral Society and Youth Choir together again with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO), following their triumphant performance of The Dream of Gerontius in June 2018. Elgar himself conducted The Apostles in Canterbury Cathedral and it is a great challenge for all performers with its scope and range of vision. Ending with a roof-raising and unforgettable climax of telling splendour. Elgar The Apostles forms part of Canterbury Choral Society history following their live recording with the Philharmonia Orchestra in 2005. ‘This is the best of me’ wrote Elgar on completion of The Dream of Gerontius. That was before he had written The Apostles. This performance of Elgar The Apostles is not to be missed. It is a rare occasion to hear this great work.
