Andrew Davis BBC Elgar – The Dream of Gerontius

‘Andrew Davis has made excellent Elgar recordings in the past, but this is surely the finest. It’s also among the best Gerontius performances on record. Davis resists the temptation to make the work sound like a flabby imitation of Parsifal and the results are outstandingly convincing.’ Terry Blain
