Don’t close your ears to the possibility of claiming compensation with injury lawyers in Little Malvern
Little Malvern is a small village located in the Malvern area of Worcestershire. The village is located near Great Malvern. Nearby is Little Malvern Priory, a Benedictine priory from the 1100s until the great Reformation. After the Reformation a house was built on the site called Little Malvern Court. The court was built for the Berrington family who still own the property to this day and occasionally open it to the public. Though nobody of great fame has come from Little Malvern, a person of great fame lived there and was buried there. His name was Sir Edward Elgar.
Edward William Elgar was born on 2nd of June 1857 in Lower Broadheath, Worcestershire. From any early age he showed an interest in music, and this was not surprising since his father had in his own youth worked for a musical publisher before becoming a piano tuner.
Elgar’s mother, Ann, had a great love of the arts and encouraged young Elgar to follow his musical passions. After leaving school, Elgar hoped to go to a music school to learn about composition. However, his family did not have enough money to send him, so the young Elgar became a lawyer’s clerk.
Secured a place as a conductor
After much trying he secured a place as a conductor of the Worcester and County Lunatic Asylum Band. Perhaps it was not the greatest way to launch a career but it was a start. After the Lunatic Asylum Band, he got a higher paid job at the Worcester College for the ‘Blind Sons’ of Gentlemen’ where he was Professor of Violin.
In his spare time he would be attending as many musical festivals as possible playing at Birmingham and Worcester. He soon had enough money to visit the continent and heard musical renditions of Wagner, Rubinstein and many others. However, he still had no proper money to speak of.
Returning to England, he met and fell in love with Caroline Alice Roberts, a prose writer and daughter of the army general Sir Henry Gee Roberts. They married three years after they first met to the outrage of Alice’s family. Elgar had no prospects and so seemed a poor choice. They moved to London to be nearer the Empire’s hub of musical activity. Slowly but surely he began to build up a reputation as a great composer.
By the time of his death however Elgar’s work was not as well-known as it should have been. Many admirers attempted to keep his music alive but it was not until the 1960s that his reputation began to pick up again. In his later years, however, Elgar didn’t mind the anonymity as much. He lived in Little Malvern for the last few years of his life before dying in 1934. He was buried next to his wife Alice in the Roman Catholic Church at Little Malvern. His work will never be forgotten.
