The Elgar Society Edition and its parent company Elgar Works are charities whose shared
aim is to stimulate wider interest in the music of the composer Edward Elgar, and in particular
in his less well known works.
The aim of the Elgar Society Edition is not only to publish further volumes in the Elgar
Complete Edition but to:
- offer volumes on a variety of favourable terms which places them within financial
reach of all who may wish to buy them;
- bring all volumes of the Complete Edition back into print, including those published by
Novello prior to 1994 which are not currently available;
- develop an electronic version of volumes which takes advantage of the interactivity of the
electronic medium to allow a greater appreciation of the music and to facilitate more detailed
study by students with different knowledge bases;
- help stimulate performances of the music by making available though Elgar Works and the
Elgar Birthplace matching scores and parts at economic prices.
