Chanson de Matin is typical of Elgar’s wistful style which, despite the title, has come to represent a nostalgic view of his native Worcestershire and the Malvern Hills in particular. Elgar presented his publisher with this work, originally written for violin and piano, shortly after the success of his Enigma Variations . In a note to accompany the score Elgar referred to piece as something he had found and dusted off, wich thought it would serve as a suitable companion piece to the Chanson de Nuit , written a few years earlier.
The orchestral version, from which this arrangement is made, was oremièred in September 1901 at the Queens Hall, London alongside that same companion piece, Chanson de Nuit .
