Showing 1 - 10 of 29 result Lord, Thou hast been our refuge: in every generation, Before the hills were born, and the world was, from age to age Thou art God. Bring us not Lord, very low; for Thou hast said, Come back again, ye sons of Adam.Come back, O Lord! how long: and be entreated for Thy servants. Newman uses the death and judgement of Gerontius as a prism through which the reader is drawn to contemplation of their his or her own fear of death and sense of unworthiness before God. His depiction of the overwhelmed Gerontius in Phase Seven of the poem, who begs to be taken for purgatorial cleansing rather than diminish the perfection of God and his courts of Saints and Angels by his continued presence, has become a popular expression of humanity's desire for healing through redemptive suffering. This scene of the poem has done much for the rehabilitation of the doctrine of purgatory which had previously come to be seen as a fearful terror rather than a state of final purification essentially positive in nature.

It is the restless panting of their being; Like beasts of prey, who, caged within their bars, In a deep hideous purring have their life, And an incessant pacing to and fro. Now that the hour is come, my fear is fled; And at this balance of my destiny, Now close upon me, I can forward look With a serenest joy. But hark! upon my sensesComes a fierce hubbub, which would make me fear Could I be frighted.  Elgar: The Dream of Gerontius - Parry: Blest Pair of Sirens - I was glad Richard Hickox. 5.0 out of 5 stars 6. £18.49.

Author Edward Elgar, John Henry Newma

Adoration aye be given, With and through the angelic host, To the God of earth and heaven, Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Sanctus fortis, Sanctus Deus, De profundis oro te, Miserere, Judex meus, Mortis in discrimine. I can no more; for now it comes again, That sense of ruin, which is worse than pain, That masterful negation and collapse Of all that makes me man. ... And, crueller still, A fierce and restless fright begins to fill The mansion of my soul, And, worse and worse, Some bodily form of ill floats on the wind, with many a loathsome curse Tainting the hallowed air, and laughs, and flaps its hideous wings, And makes me wild with horror and dismay. O Jesu, help! pray for me, Mary, pray! Some Angel, Jesu! such as came to Thee In Thine own agony ... Mary, pray for me. Joseph, pray for me. Mary, pray for me.  Edward Elgar: The Dream of Gerontius. in Germany, when Richard Strauss used it to hail 'Meister' Elgar as 'the first progressive English musician').

Now awake as just a soul he feels free of time and has a new sense of freedom. Gerontius cannot tell if he’s alive or dead but assumes he is not dead because he feels nothing out of place. He believes he could get up if only he willed it but finds that "I cannot stir a hand or foot". All of this begins to disorient him and he begins to feel as if he is floating through space, or possibly that space is floating away from him. His Guardian Angel appears just as Gerontius begins to lose his mind. The angel tells Gerontius that the angel has been watching over him since birth and now the work is done. The angel goes onto explain that throughout Gerontius's life, he has been present to keep a balance of truth and sin, to never let Gerontius fall too far down the wrong way. Gerontius finally accepts after talking to the angel that he is dead.

Lost Elgar masterpiece found in autograph book – and heard for the first time in 100 years

the dream of gerontius The Libretto Such is the popularity today of Elgar's oratorio that it is easy to overlook the fact that Newman's poem, which Elgar took as the basis of his libretto, had experienced remarkable success in its own right long before Elgar turned his serious attention to it They overhear the demons talking and laughing about Jesus's death. The demons mock those afraid of hell for being cowards because they turn to religion not because of love of the Lord but because of fear of the unknown. The soul of Gerontius asks the Angel why all of his senses still work except sight, "All has been darkness since I left the earth; Shall I remain thus sight-bereft all through my penance-time?" The Angel explains that his soul now exists in a world where he does not need senses but on the day of resurrection he will regain "all thou hast lost, new made and glorified". As for his sight he will remain blind through purgatory because purgatory “Is fire without its light.” The soul takes this in stride, "I am not worthy e'er to see again/The face of day". Despite being blind, Gerontius is told that he will see God for a split second during judgment. The Dream of Gerontius is an 1865 poem written by St John Henry Newman consisting of the prayer of a dying man, and angelic and demonic responses. The poem, written after Newman's conversion from Anglicanism to Roman Catholicism,[1] explores his new Catholic-held beliefs of the journey from death through Paradise to God and thence to Purgatory. The poem follows the main character as he nears death and then reawakens as a soul, preparing for judgment, following one of the most important events any human can experience: death.[2]

The poem follows the main character as he nears. I went to sleep; and now I am refreshed. A strange refreshment for I feel in me An inexpressive lightness, and a sense Of freedom, as I were at length myself, And ne’er had been before. How still it is! I hear no more the busy beat of time, No, nor my fluttering breath, nor struggling pulse; Nor does one moment differ from the next. This silence pours a solitarinessInto the very essence of my soul:And the deep rest so soothing and so sweet Hath something too of sternness and of pain. Another marvel: Someone has me fast Within his ample palm; ...... A uniformAnd gentle pressure tells me I am not Self-moving, but borne forward on my way, And hark! I hear a singing; yet in soothI cannot of that music rightly sayWhether I hear, or touch, or taste the tones. Oh, what a heart-subduing melody!

This 1983 performance at the Moscow Conservatory marked, surprisingly enough, the Russian premiere of Elgar's oratorio -- or oversized cantata -- The Dream of Gerontius. It's both less and more strange than some might think, and this CD reissue of a 1980s Soviet LP release, despite the bizarre retention of the fadeouts at the LP side breaks, has stirred up curiosity among a new generation of. Outstanding accounts under Edward Gardner and Mark Elder have set the bar pretty high for Gerontius in recent years in London, but Davis's was a match for them, and in one respect at least trumped. To us His elder race He gave To battle and to win, Without the chastisement of pain, Without the soil of sin. 

O loving wisdom of our God! When all was sin and shame, A second Adam to the fight And to the rescue came. And in the garden secretly, And on the cross on high, Should teach His brethren and inspire To suffer and to die.  Edward Elgar's The Dream Of Gerontius is a splendid oratorio for Mezzo-soprano, Tenor and Bass with Chorus and Orchestra. It is based on the epic poem, The Dream of Gerontius by John Henry Newman written in 1865 The Angel asks that the “golden prison open its gates” and allow the soul of Gerontius into the realm of Purgatory. The Angel asks for them to take care of him until the day he is allowed to leave into Heaven at which point the Angel will return to “reclaim it for the courts of light.” The souls in Purgatory recite their mantra stating that the Lord will come for them and that they will wake up the next morning to find themselves filled with the Lord’s mercy and be allowed admittance into Heaven. As the poem comes to an end, the Angel softly releases the Soul of Gerontius, into Purgatory. The Angel tells him that the angels of Purgatory will tend to him and nurse him so he becomes ready to enter Heaven. He offers one last goodbye: “Farewell, but not for ever! brother dear, Be brave and patient on thy bed of sorrow; Swiftly shall pass thy night of trial here, And I will come and wake thee on the morrow.”

Symphony Hall Website Map O wisest love! that flesh and blood Which did in Adam fail, Should strive afresh against the foe, Should strive and should prevail; Jesu, Maria – I am near to death, And Thou art calling me; I know it now, Not by the token of this faltering breath, This chill at heart, this dampness on my brow – (Jesu, have mercy! Mary, pray for me) ’Tis this new feeling, never felt before, (Be with me, Lord, in my extremity!) That I am going, that I am no more. ’Tis this strange innermost abandonment, (Lover of souls! great God! I look to Thee.) This emptying out of each constituent And natural force, by which I come to be.

Hist to their cry!

What’s a saint? One whose breath Doth the air taint Before his death; A bundle of bones, Which fools adore, Ha! Ha! When life is o’er. Virtue and vice, A knave’s pretence. ’Tis all the same; Ha! ha! Dread of hell-fire, Of the venomous flame, A coward’s plea. Give him his price, Saint though he be, Ha! ha! From shrewd good sense He’ll slave for hire; Ha! Ha!

Edward Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius is not everyone's cup of tea, with its gigantism and its massive recitatives of Catholic doctrine.But it hangs on, and from the beginning it has had adherents beyond Britain. The work tells the story of a soul's passage into death Gerontius owes much of its imagery to the Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri, an allegorical depiction of traveling through the realms of the dead.

Elgar and The Dream of Gerontius. Edward Elgar was a respected composer, published by Novello and Co. In 1900, he composed a choral work based on the poem written by Cardinal Newman. Elgar was commissioned to create the work for performance at the Birmingham Triennial Festival Everyone who loves Elgar acclaims The Dream of Gerontius as a masterpiece. I don't. Cardinal Newman's words are beyond atrocious as poetry, and I find their sado-masochistic doctrinal underpinning sickening (O happy, suffering soul

Take me away, and in the lowest deep There let me be, And there in hope the lone night-watches keep, Told out for me. There, motionless, and happy in my pain, Lone, not forlorn – There will I sing my sad perpetual strain, Until the morn, There will I sing, and soothe my stricken breast, Which ne’er can cease To throb, and pine, and languish, till possest Of its Sole Peace. There will I sing my absent Lord and Love: – Take me away, That sooner I may rise, and go above, And see Him in the truth of everlasting day. The soul of Gerontius and his Guardian Angel are by this point very near to the "veiled presence of our God". Far removed from the earlier grandeur of the rhapsodic angelic hosts, Gerontius now finds only a dread and august silence which surrounds the throne of God. The echoes of the prayers for mercy uttered by the Priest and Gerontius's friends at the deathbed in Phase One are discernible in the stillness. In The Dream of Gerontius, Elgar sets the story of an ordinary, everyday man whose soul journeys from its final mortal moments into the unknown. Guided by an Angel, the path to judgement finally reveals a glimpse of God so powerful that it calls upon the greatest sound an orchestra can make Sir Simon Rattle returns to the podium of the Berliner Philharmoniker with a major work by his countryman Edward Elgar. The Dream of Gerontius describes the journey of the soul of a dead man on its way to the next world. The work was composed in 1900, one year after Sigmund Freud published his epochal The Interpretation of Dreams . The dream as the gateway to the subconscious Newman wrote The Dream of Gerontius later in his life as he was beginning to contemplate his final end. This magnificent poem follows Gerontius from his earthly end to his introduction before the heavenly host. The poem was first performed in 1900 by the English composer, Edward Elgar.
