Sir Edward Elgar's graduation greatness

If you asked classical music afficienados what piece comes to mind when you think of Sir Edward Elgar they would say The Enigma Variations [which was on yesterday's post] and his Pomp and Circumstance Marches.  While those not familiar with classical music probably don't know those pieces, everyone will know one of themes in his Pomp and Circumstance March #1 in D major.
You will know it, and if you have a teenager who just graduated, this will bring back memories and maybe a tear to the eye.  If you listen at  the 1:57 mark you will hear what I am talking about.
