Elgar himself conducted The Apostles in Canterbury Cathedral
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. Edward Elgar The Apostles is part of Canterbury Choral Society history as they recorded it live with the Philharmonia Orchestra in 2005. ‘This is the best of me’ wrote Elgar on completion of The Dream of Gerontius. But 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.
