| "Elgar’s The Kingdom is not as popular nor performed as frequently as his The Dream of Gerontius, though some cognoscenti claim that the former is the greater work.

"It was a glorious concert of a glorious work. The Benson Choral Society sang with tremendous conviction and beauty, and every one of your soloists was superb”.
