Love, Op 18 No 2

First line:
Like the rosy norther glow
author of text

Love reflects the blend of craftsmanship and inspiration that had placed Elgar at the summit of Edwardian musical life: both qualities emerge in his treatment of Maquarie’s line ‘Cease to be’, repeated four times in the bass line and richly decorated in the tenor part’s flowing melody.
