In 1923, Edward Elgar made a transcription of Handel’s overture to Chandos Anthem No. 2 (In the Lord I Put My Trust). In this illustrated talk, Elgar scholar, Relf Clark, and Katharine Hogg, Librarian of the Gerald Coke Handel Collection, explore the role played by Handel’s music in Elgar’s compositions.
Relf Clark, a retired City solicitor, studied music at Oxford University and has a PhD in historical musicology. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists and an honorary member of the Elgar Society. His published works include Elgar and ‘The romantic loner’ and other essays.
