"Nimrod" is the ninth variation from Elgar's "Variations on an Original Theme" also known as the "Enigma Variations". This variation is set to portray Augustus J. Jaeger, hence Nimrod the hunter and is the most commonly performed movement in the set. It is always played at the Cenotaph, Whitehall in London on Remembrance Day and has been set in many different arrangements for groups ranging from dual pianos to Wind Band. I have set it here as an arrangement for Woodwind Quintet after the suggestion of my friend and bassoonist, Ray Patricio. I hope you will enjoy my efforts.

A chorale-style arrangement of Elgar's classic hymn from 'Enigma Variations'. In this arrangement, marimba 1 plays the melody with tremolo, 2 mallets, and marimba 2 plays the accompaniment with 4 mallets. The speed of the tremolos must be tightly matched to avoid strange undulations in the ripple of notes (this is notated). I imagined both marimbas to be 4.3 octave, but actually marimba 1's part could fit on a 4 octave with the lowest pitch being F below middle C.

Nimrod - From the Enigma Variations, for 8 cellos or cello orchestra, dedicated to cellist Francis Church. Score and Parts included.

This arrangement is possible to do with a multi level ensemble. The bottom parts are doable for beginner/intermediate cellists. The top parts are difficult and go very high up the fingerboard.

I originally envisioned this arrangement for a giant cello orchestra. So the half section marking may be ignored if you don't have more than 2 on a part.
