Back issues of The Journal published by the Elgar Society are now available online and free of charge at: http://www.elgar.org/elgarsoc/site/Journals.php, opening up a 15-year archive of articles, essays and research papers to all those with an interest in Elgar and his legacy.
The Elgar Society first issued The Journal as a stand-alone publication in 1999, since when it has been circulated three times a year to members of the Society together with selected academic institutions. Content ranges from the findings of Elgar-related research to reviews of books and CDs. The most recent issue, edited by Elgar Society member Martin Bird, includes articles entitled ‘Thoughts on The Music Makers – a conductor’s viewpoint’ by Dr Donald Hunt and ‘Edward Elgar – a medical enigma?’ by Dr John Harcup; the editorial closes with extracts from Elgar’s own diary of 100 years ago.
