Elgar The Kingdom

Sherborne Festival Chorus
with Chameleon Arts Orchestra

We’re delighted to be part of Sherborne Festival Chorus again for its annual concert in the Sherborne Abbey Festival. Elgar’s final oratorio gives a moving portrait of the lives of Jesus’s disciples following the Ascension and the life of the early Church. With rich and colourful orchestral writing and a dramatic vocal style which is almost operatic in places, this magnificent work is Elgar at his most inspired. Though it is not as often performed as Gerontius, Sir Adrian Boult considered it to be Elgar’s greatest
choral work – praise indeed!
