Paul Groves St John / Narrator
Brindley Sherratt Judas
Gerald Finley St Peter
Jacques Imbrailo Jesus

Elgarís oratorio The Apostles is all-too-rarely presented: it contains some of Elgarís most inspired writing, particularly in its dramatic portrayal of Judas, the inclusion of a shofar at dawn and a memorably exalted ending. This is a fine opportunity to hear it with an exceptional cast: Jacques Imbrailo, Paul Groves and Brindley Sherratt, who have recently recorded it to great acclaim, are joined by Sarah Connolly and Gerald Finley under the baton of our Conductor Laureate, Sir Andrew Davis.

The performance finishes at approximately 9.30pm

Come and Sing Elgar 2 - 5pm, City of London Girls School
The BBC Symphony Chorus and BBC Singers invite you to an afternoon workshop singing excerpts from Elgarís oratorios. The workshop is suitable to people who are able to read music and all voices are welcome.
