Tag Tuesday.


The theme of this tag for Tag Tuesday is 'Music' and straight away I knew what I could do for this. I live at the foot of the Malvern Hills, Malvern is Elgar country - you know 'Land Of Hope & Glory', 'The Enigma Variations'. Well there is a cottage - we can see it from ours - where Edward Elgar lived on and off and where he wrote a lot of his music. The music I have used on my tag comes from 'The Dream Of Gerontius' which he wrote at Birchwood Lodge and there is a picture of him on his bike which he used to ride around the lanes by us. (It is even fabled that the great man's father even came to our house to tune the old piano now sitting in our dinning room). Now how is that for a history lesson on a Wednesday  morning - hope I haven't bored you all too much! See you soon - Jacqueline xx.
