Pomp and Circumstance March No.1 in D (Orchestra) Elgar Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Elgar's most creative and successful period was between 1899 and 1919, when he was in his 40s and 50s. He composed this Pomp and Circumstance March in 1901. Later the song Land of Hope and Glory was adapted from the trio of this march. It became enormously popular in Britain, which was full of jingoistic patriotism in this Edwardian period. Elgar became an unofficial national musical laureate, mainly based on this the success of this song/hymn/anthem. But Elgar had to wait until 1924 before he was officially given the post of Master of the King's Music.
