7.57 app. Interval
4 The Betrayal
6 At the Sepulchre
7 The Ascension
During the interval Basil Maine talks about Elgar's 'The Apostles'
Elgar's desire to write an oratorio treating of the calling, teaching, and mission of the Apostles, goes back to his earliest days. But he was well over forty before he actually wrote the work, and it was his second oratorio. It was produced the year that it was finished (1903), at the Birmingham Festival.
The Apostles, which covers more or less the story of the Gospels, tells of Christ's life, from his first intimate association with those who were his closest followers, until the Ascension. The words are Scriptural. The Gospel story has continuously woven into it commentary made of material from both Old and New Testaments.
