Elgar finished the piece in July 1888, when he was engaged to be married to Caroline Alice Roberts, and he called it "Liebesgruss" ('Love's Greeting') because of Miss Roberts' fluency in German. When he returned home from a holiday, he presented it to her as an engagement present. This arrangement can be played in with Part 4 standard tuning (slightly easier) or with the 6th string tuned to D (slightly harder but more delicious!).
