Description

Dyson's sumptuous choral epic of 1938, subtitled ‘A Cycle of Poems’, charts man's journey through life and the afterlife, using a collage of English poems. Quo Vadis is a work that, in its aim, designand achievement, reaches for visionary heights. Right from the start, Dyson's harmonic language and skilful orchestration are completely at the service of his beautiful and carefully crafted libretto. The composerfervently believed in the English choral movement's need for practical, tuneful and lively music. Quo Vadis, with its colourful orchestration and fine melodies, demonstrates the effectiveness of thisaestheticapproach. Arranged for SATB Chorus and Orchestra, this major, yet often overlooked piece lasts about 90 minutes in 9 movements.
