In the Summer of 1888, Edward Elgar and Alice Roberts were heading towards marriage. Alice presented Edward with a poem she had written and entitled Love’s Grace. Edward reciprocated by writing a short piece of music for her, which he called Love’s Greeting. Towards the end of 1888, Edward submitted three arrangements of the work to the music publishing firm of Schott who agreed to buy the work outright for a fee of two guineas. At first, the work sold slowly. Apparently with Elgar’s approval, Schott’s retitled the work Salut d’Amour and gave the composer’s name as Ed. Elgar, believing that the French title and a less obviously English composer would help the work gain wider international approval. It did, much to the publisher’s satisfaction but with no financial benefit to Elgar.
