When Edward Elgar wrote the Enigma Variations...each song was dedicated to a friend.
'Nimrod' is a favorite of mine, it moves me. It makes me think of a time when war was still romantic, of men writing letters to loved ones back home, in rainy trenches in foreign lands far from home.
Elgar dedicated 'Nimrod' to a friend that convinced him to continue composing music, at a time when he was about to quit in a fit of depression.
I hope you you can appreciate it a bit....
