To celebrate Sir Edward Elgar's 150th birthday, David Owen Norris and The Works perform Elgar's songs and piano solos on Elgar's own 1844 Broadwood piano, including the world premiere of his unpublished final song XTC, set to his own words. This 2-CD set presents 32 of Elgar's finest songs for voice and piano, including a number never recorded before.
