Sir Edward Elgar (1857-1934) was a British Composer. One of his most famous pieces of Music was the Enigma Variations. Variation IX was called 'Nimrod' and is often played at solemn occasions such as funerals and the annual Remembrance Sunday service to remember the war dead in the UK.

Sir Edward Elgar

In recent times, the music was used in the song: 'We Will Stand Together':

We will stand together

Even through the darkest hour

When the night seems never-ending

We know there will be a dawn for us

When the world seems broken

Broken like the hearts within us

Destiny will guide us and we'll dare to raise our eyes to heaven

God will light our way

We shall win the day

We shall win the day...


Then once again the glorious

We will emerge victorious

Until then hand in hand

We'll let history know that...


We will stand together

Even in the darkest moment

Destiny will guide us and we'll dare to raise our eyes to heaven

History will say..

We shall win the day

We shall win the day

We will stand together... till then.
