A land of Hope and Glory

Edward Elgar 

Diapason, 5 diapasons

Few are aware that Sir Edward Elgar was an organist in his youth and that he composed two major pieces for his instrument, to wit the refined Vesper Voluntaries and a large, lyrical Sonata for Organ in G major which is on a par with the great works of the repertory flourishing in France and Germany at the approach of the 20th century.
Two brilliant and cheerful pages, an Imperial March and the first of the Pomp and Circumstances marches, extol ‘A Land of hope and glory’. Chanson de nuit, Chanson de matin and Nimrod, three beautiful organ transcriptions, nicely illustrate the composer’s musical expression, always seductive and beautiful.
