Mina (the name of Elgar’s Cairn Terrier) is known in its orchestral version of 1933. Piano sketches and a fair copy exist in the British Library. When Elgar sent it and other pieces to Keith Prowse he allowed that ‘they can be adapted to any [arrangement] you think fit’. An edition was published in 2005 by David Patrick, and Piers Lane made his from all the available sources.

De Mina (le cairn-terrier d’Elgar), on connaît la version orchestrale de 1933. La British Library en conserve des esquisses pianistiques et une copie au propre. Elgar l’envoya, avec d’autres pièces, à Keith Prowse, qu’il autorisa à les «[adapter] à n’importe quel [arrangement] que vous jugerez bon». Une édition parut en 2005, réalisée par David Patrick; Piers Lane a conçu la sienne à partir de toutes les sources disponibles.

Mina (Elgars Cairn Terrier) ist in der Orchesterversion von 1933 bekannt. Klavierskizzen und eine Reinschrift werden in der British Library aufbewahrt. Als Elgar dieses und andere Stücke an Keith Prowse schickte, gestattete er ihm, sie nach Belieben zu bearbeiten. 2005 wurde eine Edition von David Patrick herausgegeben und Piers Lane erstellte die seine aus allen zugänglichen Quellen.
