The Dream of Gerontius at Exeter Cathedral


Exeter Symphony Orchestra in conjunction with Exeter Phiharmonic Choir, University Chapel Choir & St David's Singers




This event has been planned for some time now, and is an involvement of all things musical in Exeter. Local choirs and orchestra, and local soloists – all very well known in the area and two of whom – Tom Hobbs and Madeleine Shaw – are of great international repute.

Thomas Hobbs will sing Gerontius, who was brought up here in Exeter, and is a soloist of international repute thoughout Europe and North America.

Madeleine Shaw, who will sing the Angel, now lives in Exeter and is well known internationally as a fine mezzo soprano. Tim Murfin, another well-known local soloist, will take the baritone role.

Members of Exeter Philharmonic, St.David's Singers and the University Chapel Choir and singers, as well as other local choral singers will be involved, with ESO, of course, providing the orchestral backbone and immense orchestral colour needed for such a work. All further details can be found at
