Elgar said, "my first music was learnt in the Cathedral ...from books borrowed from the music library, when I was eight, nine or ten." Elgar began to learn German, in the hope of going to the Leipzig Conservatory for further musical studies, but his father could not afford to send him.He also composed choral works, including The Dream of Gerontius, chamber music and songs.He was appointed Master of the King's Musick in 1924.
He nevertheless married the daughter of a senior British army officer.

However, it was a disappointment to Elgar that on leaving school in 1872 he went not to Leipzig but to the office of a local solicitor as a clerk.

It began to revive significantly in the 1960s, helped by new recordings of his works.
