Not only the famous Nimrod, but also most of the other 14 Enigma Variations by Elgar – affectionate portraits of people from the composer’s circle – are extremely suitable for performance on the organ. This is reflected in this edition, which contains Nimrod as well as ten other variations from the cycle for the first time in arrangements for organ. These are based on the two original versions for orchestra and for piano. The arrangements of these marvellous atmospheric variations are of moderate difficulty and are equally suitable for performance in concert or church services.
