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 central character, Gerontius (the name derives from the Ancient Greek gero¯n, meaning simply ‘old man’), prays for assistance to the Blessed Virgin Mary and to other saints, and after his soulsearing first sight of God, he doesn’t go straight to Heaven, but is committed to Purgatory for purification. For some Protestants in Elgar’s day, all this would have been pure heresy. However, one could argue that this is an essay in the transition from time to eternity viewed through the doctrine of the Roman Church.

The original organ at St Peter's was probably built by Lincoln in 1812 and lived on the gallery under the tower until 1878, when it was moved to the chamber on the north side of the chancel. By 1952 it had deteriorated badly and Fenton Wragg overhauled it, adding much material from the organ of St Columba's Church, Mansfield Road. Further overhauls and additions were made by Henry Willis in 1964 and Hill, Norman & Beard in 1983, but by the end of the 20th century there were further problems as much of the mechanism was wearing out. The additions over the years had not solved the problem of the organ being enclosed in a chamber with only two small arches to let the sound out. In particular, the pipes of the Pedal division were tucked away at the back of the chamber and could not be heard properly. When the electronics in the console failed in November 2007 it seemed unwise to spend any more money on the instrument.
