Edward Elgar: The Apostles Complete Edition (Cloth)

Books | Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass, Orchestra

Publisher: Novello
Artist: Edward Elgar
Format: Sheet Music | Score

Elgar's oratorio The Apostles was the biggest endeavour of his creative life. Elgar used the Bible as the source for his libretto, taking words and phrases, combining separate stories and superimposed different actions one upon another until the psychological emphasis of the libretto reflected its composer as faithfully as the music it was to serve.

The Elgar Complete Edition brings together for the first time all of the composer's surviving music from printed and manuscript sources.
