Elgar's Church

Fr John Abberton of Stella Maris has an interesting post on "Elgar and other Catholics"
which has given me an excuse to post this snap of St George's, Worcester which I took in October 2010. Elgar was organist at St George's from 1885 until 1889- although he had deputised for his father, who preceded him in the post, from 1872. At his leaving the parish priest, Fr Knight, presented him with a copy of Blessed John Henry Newman's poem "The Dream of Gerontius" as a wedding present. The rest is, as they say, history!


  1. Fr. John's post was excellent and thank you for the additional information and the great photo.
    Blessings and prayers,

  2. Thanks, Ann,
    The subject is rather dear to my heart and I have made a further comment. In fact I am considering a post on the subject myself,
