By Newman, Cardinal John Henry (Author)
$13.95 AUD

Cardinal Newman's renowned poem describes the death of an old man and the journey of his soul to the judgment seat of God. First published in 1865, it quickly became a bestseller in its field, second only in popularity to Tennyson's In Memoriam This new edition of the poem marks the bicentenary of Newman's birth in 1801; it also celebrates the centenary of the first performance in 1900 of Elgar's choral masterpiece based on the poem. In addition to a foreword by Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Birmingham, there is an Introduction by Fr. Gregory Winterton of the Birmingham Oratory, which Newman founded and where he worked and preached for more than forty years. Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, CFR, has written a preface to the book as well. Also included are a section on Elgar's Dream of Gerontius, which rapidly became the most popular choral work in Britain after Handel's Messiah, and a discography of currently available recordings of Elgar's Dream.
