Ave Verum Corpus, Op. 2

Elgar composed his music for Ave Verum Corpus in January 1887 following the death of of his father's friend (and Elgar's first employer) W.A. Allen. He originally marked it with a funeral setting from the Requiem Mass for the choir of his local church St George's. In 1902 he revised the work resetting it to the words of Ave verum in 1902.
