EdwardElgarBorn: 1857 Died: 1934

Born in the West Country of England, Broadheath near the lovely city of Worcester to be precise, Edward Elgar is best remembered for the stirring tune which has proven inspirational for generations of English people, ‘Land of Hope and Glory’. This has become a standard hymn through the years and is preferred by many to ‘God Save The Queen’ as the national anthem.

It was not until after the age of 30 that Elgar became a force majeur in musical circles. The inspirations for his new found ardour being accredited as a visit by the Czeh composer Dvorak to England and Elgar’s marriage to his dearly beloved Caroline Alice. His wife remained his inspiration throughout his life.
