Don’t know those songs. Mind you l don’t know ALL the words to ‘Land of Hope...’ either! lOl

There was an interesting chat on Hereford & Worcs radio today where they interviewed a biographer of Elgar who composed the original music. Apparently the not all words were approved by Elgar himself and he substituted some of the expansionist/imperialist lines for more altruistic sentiments, but the main rousing chorus etc remained. The biographer observed that if we sang this version then no-one could be offended.....except perhaps the idiots at the Beeb.....because we are only entitled to THEIR opinion! :?
