Londonderry Air

Martin Cooke

Recommended Posts

I remember someone saying once that Sir Edward Elgar described the Londonderry Air as the finest tune ever written. Can anyone possibly corroborate this or know exactly what it was that Elgar said?

Somewhere, recently, someone has been asking how to find the delightful Rawsthorne organ prelude on the LDA. I will be playing this at the Gradual in church on Sunday as the hymn 'I cannot tell why he, whom angels worship' references the gospel of the day, according to the RSCM's 'Sunday by Sunday' publication. 

A quick answer to the above would be great as I'd like to prime the Rector.
