Petroc Trelawny presents another chance to hear this performance of Elgar's magnificent oratorio, recorded at the 2005 BBC Proms. Elgar set texts by Cardinal John Henry Newman in a work that was to become eloquent testimony to the composer's Catholic faith.
 
See the Elgar on Radio 3 pages for more information and programme notes.
