Elgar The Kingdom 100'

‘Your young men shall see visions and your old men shall dream dreams’

The powerful story begun in The Apostles concludes in The Kingdom. Be inspired by Elgar’s stirring music as the lives of Peter, Mary and the Apostles are brought to life through sublime melody. The moving theme of New Faith, the glorious depiction of Pentecost, and the devotional setting of the Lord’s Prayer shine through this work that Elgar himself dedicated to the greater glory of God. Critically acclaimed tenor Toby Spence joins a superb line-up of soloists to bring this year’s festival to a magnificent finish.
