This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition is in the public domain because it was published at least 25 years ago for most of the EU (20 years ago in Italy, 30 years ago in Poland) over 25 years ago for the former USSR. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere.

Extra Information Written for the inauguration of the Carillon at Loughborough War Memorial. Dedicated to William Wooding Starmer, Professor of Campanology at the University of Birmingham. The piece was commissioned for the inauguration of the Loughborough War Memorial Carillon in July 1923. In collaboration with William Wooding Starmer and Belgian carilloneur Jef Denyn, Elgar adapted his sketch to the ‘niceties and limitations’ of the particular instrument, but being unsatisfied with the result he soon arranged it for organ.
