“Raising standards”: The Dream of Gerontius
Buy ‘part two’ and get ‘part one’ included for free!*
Choir & Organ’s September/October issue features part two of David Hill’s in-depth conducting tutorial on Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius. As a special offer to those who buy this issue, we’ll include a free copy of part one contained in our July/August issue.
The Dream of Gerontius is arguably Edward Elgar’s most profound choral work. A beloved choral and orchestral masterpiece, its focussed structure, use of motifs, brilliant orchestration, dramatic and colourful use of voices set a new benchmark.
As part of his series on conducting the great masterworks, Bach Choir conductor David Hill outlines how to prepare the work, spending time on the difficult technical corners and giving advice on handling the many tempo and dynamic changes that give Gerontius its dramatic impetus.
