Worcester Cathedral - 150th Anniversary of Edward Elgar

An image of Worcester Cathedral's west face was featured on the reverse of the Bank of England £20 note Series E, issued between 1999 and 2007. It accompanies a portrait of the composer, Edward Elgar, who was born a hundred and fifty years ago in the village of Broadheath, just three miles outside the town of Worcester. Elgar is celebrated as possibly our greatest English composer. Among his many works is Land of Hope and Glory, adapted from the Pomp and Circumstance Marches as the Coronation Ode for Edward VII. It fast became a popular favourite and nowadays is sung as the finale to the proms each year.

Worcester Cathedral is on a glorious site, with the River Severn running along its boundaries. It was founded in 680, but nothing remains of the original building. The oldest part still standing is in the crypt, which dates back to the tenth century, but the main part of the building was done in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.
