Information on Elegy

The song Elegy is a poem of serious reflection, typically a lament for the dead. The song Elegy make me feel sad because the music has a slow tempo and is full of slurs. Since the song is for the dead it would be played a funerals. Elegy has a very slow and flowing tune. John Tyndall wrote Elegy probably to let people feel emotion.
