Elgar is probably Britain’s most famous composer of early 20th Century, and represents British Romanticism at its best. Nimrod was originally Variation No. 9 from his Enigma Variations, and pays a subtle homage to Beethoven. Nimrod now stands as a piece in its own right and has been affectionately adopted as the soundtrack to official British state mourning. This arrangement for clarinet choir captures Elgar’s noble and majestic orchestration exploiting the clarinet’s string-like qualities.

“Nimrod” is also published as a saxophone octet and saxophone ensemble, also available from Saxtet Publications.
