      Elgar: The Apostles, Op 49: VI, At the Sepulchre (3:46); VII, The Ascension (15:34)

      Soloists; Hallé Choir; Hallé Orchestra / Sir Mark Elder

      Elgar’s oratorio is a retelling of Christ’s Passion from the viewpoint of his followers. First performed in 1903, The Apostles is a massive work of over two hours in length. While the piece itself, first intended to be part of a trilogy, has had an uneven history, its glorious choral writing is thought to be some of Elgar’s most poignant.
