The Apostles [Edward Elgar op 49]

Sadly not the wonderful Adrian Boult version but still tear-inducing, heart-soaring prologue,dawn,turn ye,Judas & Euntes... What has ever been more dramatic than the crescendo 'Lord how long shall the wicked triumph? Yet they say the Lord shall not see' and the whispering "He who planted the ear, shall He not hear? He who formed the eye, shall He not see?" ...and if anyone doesn't choke-up by the time it gets to the voiceless "Eloi, Eloi..."? Tears flow...listen and remember what this is all about and let the world be seen through Heaven's eyes....
