Edward Elgar manuscript found during council clear-out
An Edward Elgar manuscript dating back nearly 90 years has been discovered in a council building in Leicestershire.
Staff found the musical score while clearing out a storage room at Charnwood Borough Council's headquarters in Loughborough.
The piece had been commissioned to accompany the opening of a bell tower in the town's Queen's Park in 1923.
Letters from the composer and a film reel, believed to be of the tower being opened, were also found.
