  1. The Apostles Op 49 - Sir Edward Elgar

A rare opportunity to hear this magnificent work, given as part of the celebration of the tenth birthday of Merton College’s phenomenally successful choir.

Believed by many, including his close friend and publisher Jaeger, to contain some of Elgar’s very finest writing, The Apostles tells the story of Christ’s later life and passion through the experience of those around him, most tellingly perhaps Mary Magdalene and Judas Iscariot. Despite the huge forces it requires – a large orchestra and chorus, plus no fewer than six solo singers – Elgar’s deeply felt oratorio tells a profoundly human story in every gloriously scored bar.

‘This choir is a 2008 creation, yet has quickly gained distinction.’ Sunday Times
‘…one of the UK’s finest choral ensembles.’ Gramophone
