Thanks so much, Angus! I love Holst and it's new for me, and it is absolutely impossible to find here. Nice re-up! And thanks for Hovhaness too, also hard to find. Greetings from Brazil!

Thank you so very much. Holst's choral music is so difficult to find. Absolutely sublime.

Thank you again! Been looking for Gustav Holst posts for a while. I was getting closer to insanity with every link of "Mars: Bringer Of War" Youtube links haha.

Right? The Planets is great stuff, but Holst is a great original in so many compositions. The Hymn of Jesus has so many wild moments in it, and The Wandering Scholar is a trip.
