Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Elgar’s elegy for unaccompanied chorus sets words by Cardinal Newman. It was written in response to a commission from Sir Walter Parratt for an anthem to be sung on the anniversary of Queen Victoria’s death, and was first performed at the Royal Mausoleum at Frogmore on 22 January 1910.
