Elegy
composer

Elegy  [4'44]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Sir George Thalben-Ball’s dedication of his Elegy to Walford Davies demonstrates the esteem and affection in which he held his predecessor at The Temple Church. Originally improvised at the conclusion of a broadcast Evensong, Thalben-Ball’s work takes the outline and characteristic intervals of Solemn Melody, making something quite fresh and affecting from them.
