Today, Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius is a national monument. But at its first performance in Birmingham, 105 years ago, the music was thought daring and difficult, while the subject matter was viewed in some quarters with intense suspicion. The text of The Dream of Gerontius – by the Victorian Catholic convert, Cardinal John Henry Newman – is rich in doctrine that had been emphatically rejected by the Protestant church since the time of the Reformation.

The work on display was of a very high standard, and we hope that this will be the beginning of the development of St Mary’s as an art exhibition centre in the city, connecting the arts and spirituality. With its close proximity to "Nottingham Contemporary" art gallery, the church already benefits from extra visitors, and we hope that this relationship will continue.
