The Elgar Society releases free online archive of The Journal

Back issues of The Journal published by the Elgar Society are now available online and free of charge at www.elgar.org, opening up a 15-year archive of articles, essays and research papers to all those with an interest in Elgar and his legacy.

The Elgar Society first issued The Journal as a stand-alone publication in 1999, since when it has been circulated three times a year to members of the society together with selected academic institutions. Content ranges from the findings of Elgar-related research to reviews of books and CDs. The most recent issue, edited by Elgar Society member Martin Bird, includes articles entitled ‘Thoughts on The Music Makers – a conductor’s viewpoint’ by Dr Donald Hunt and ‘Edward Elgar – a medical enigma?’ by Dr John Harcup OBE: the editorial closes with extracts from Elgar’s own diary of 100 years ago.

‘We’re delighted to make back issues of The Journal so readily accessible as a single archive for the first time,’ says Elgar Society Vice-Chair Stuart Freed. ‘They make fascinating reading and we’re sure they will prove particularly useful to students and academics both in the UK and overseas whilst adding to the body of public knowledge about Elgar’s works, life and historical context.’

Formed in 1951 to encourage the study, performance and appreciation of the music of Sir Edward Elgar and to foster research into his life and works, the Elgar Society brings members together at branch, national and international levels through meetings, lectures, recitals and visits. In addition to The Journal, all members also receive the thrice-yearly Elgar Society News, where delightful snippets of Elgar-related trivia combine with news from members, concert reports, diary dates and readers’ letters.

Barry Collett, winner of the Elgar Society Medal, wrote an article on Elgar's piano music in the September/October 13 edition of IP, issue 15.
