Gower Chorale to perform 'The Dream of Gerontius'


The Gower Chorale singers will be staging a special concert to celebrate the choir's 20th anniversary.
On June 20 the choir will sing The Dream of Gerontius: with music by Sir Edward Elgar from poems written by Cardinal John Henry Newman.
Since its first performance in Birmingham Town Hall in October 1900 the work has become regarded as Elgar’s finest choral composition.
The Groves Directory of Music and Musicians rates it as one of his three finest works and many regard it as Elgar’s masterpiece.
The last time this work was performed in the Brangwyn Hall was in 1984, more than 30 years ago, by Swansea Philharmonic Choir, so it is fitting that The Gower Chorale choose the work to celebrate its 20th year in the newly-revamped Brangwyn Hall.
The concert will take place on Saturday, June 20, at 7 pm and, under the guidance of musical director Luke Spencer will be the Festival Orchestra of Wales, leader Mansel Hughes.
Huw Tregelles Williams, OBE, DL, will accompany on the organ and guest soloists for the evening will be soprano, Angharad Morgan, tenor, Robyn Lyn Evans and bass, Anthony Stuart Lloyd.
Tickets are already on sale at £15 each, either through the choir or through ticketsource.co.uk/brangwynhall at £15 plus a booking fee.
