Long Description:
From the Nartional Trust website:-
"Edward William Elgar was born on 2nd June 1857. From humble origins, and despite having had no formal music training, he became England’s greatest composer for 200 years and put the nation, which had been known as “The Land without Music” back on the musical map.

His father, William Henry Elgar was an itinerant piano tuner from Kent who moved to Worcester in the 1840s and set up a piano tuning and music business. His mother, Ann Greening was a farmer’s daughter from the Forest of Dean. Although hardly educated, she developed a great love of literature and the natural world."
