Dream of Gerontius Concert – 13th October 7.30 Bute Hall, University Avenue, Glasgow.

The Dream of Gerontius is a poem written by John Henry Newman (February 21, 1801 – August 11, 1890) consisting of the prayer of a dying man, and angelic and demonic responses. Newman said that the poem “was written by accident – and it was published by accident.” He wrote it up in fair copy from fifty-two scraps of paper between 17 January and 7 February 1865 and published it in May and June of the same year, in two parts in the Jesuit periodical The Month. The poem inspired a choral work of the same name by Edward Elgar in 1900. The Archdiocese of Glasgow Arts Project is sponsoring a production of Elgar’s “Dream of Gerontius” in the Bute Hall of Glasgow University as part of the Arts in the Autumn 2012 Festival. The performance begins at 19.30 on October 13th. Proceeds from the concert will be divided between two charities – “Aid for Children of El Salvador” and the Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund (SCIAF).   Four choirs are coming together for the performance – Bearsden Choir; Glasgow University Chapel Choir; Glasgow University Choral Society; and the Choir of the Academy of Sacred Music.
