Click here for some past perfomances

The Elgar Society has several excellent pages dedicated to the Dream of Gerontius

The Best of Me - A Gerontius Centenary Companion - written by Geoffrey Hodgkins is an comprehensive account of the composition and performance history of the work.

John Henry Newman - articles and essays on the author of the poem; also his own writings. The Newman Reader has the complete text of the poem.

Reduced Orchestrations - If you want to perform the Dream of Gerontius, and you don't have access to a full-sized symphony orchestra, this site is worth a look.

An attractive new edition of the poem has been published by Family Publications, Oxford (email only). There is also an introduction to the poem, and a section dedicated to Elgar's Dream of Gerontius. Price 4.95 + 50p postage.

A Nice Recording

The historical Gerontius was a Roman gereral. Further details are here. Also a pronunciation guide to the name to fuel the debate ...

If you're a Tolkein fan, you'll probably already know that Gerontius Took was Frodo Baggins's great-grandfather. You can find out more on this Tolkein website. See the section on "Gandalf and the Hobbits"!
