Sir Edward Elgar Lyrics

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,--
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.

Shakespeare's "King Richard II" Act 2 Scene 1

Your Maw

Im Scottish. Lived here my whole life.
Love Britain with all my heart and soul. Im old enough to have a grandpa who fought in the 2nd world war, he never spoke about it. A lot of men from that time didn't.

But what he did teach me before he passed when i was younger, was that a man is the sum of his parts. A true man helps people in need, is good to his partner, fights for social justice, and fights for queen and country.

My grandfather was also for Scottish independence. Which I, in love with an English woman, am also in favour of.

Wanting independence for one's nation is not a crime, nor overly nationalistic. It is a question of autonomy, and democracy.

I love my English, Welsh and Irish and everything in between neighbours. We will always and forever be brothers and sisters in this great nation. Elgar should remind everyone of the true patriotism...the emotive and wonderful feeling of kindness and empathy for our neighbour.

He should also remind us of resilience. Elgar didn't "make it" until he was in his 40s. Then he published one of the greatest pieces of British music ever composed.

These are the principles Britain was based on, and they will reign again.

@R W It's an incredible piece of music. If you look under "Nimrod played on the Organ, there's a clip of a professional organist playing this on a big pipe organ. That is beautiful, too.

Your comment is amazing. I was watching a movie and this song popped into my head so I searched for it. The amazing part is that before I looked at the comments the thought came to mind that I would love for this to be played at my funeral. Then I saw your comment.
