The Orchestra Now and musicians from the Bard College Conservatory Orchestra perform Elgar’s masterful choral work, conducted by Leon Botstein, in this special side-by-side concert.

Elgar drew the lyrics for this choral work from John Henry Cardinal Newman’s poem that follows the soul of one pious man as he journeys from death to judgment to purgatory.
