    • Ah no ~ thought of it but had to stick with the symphony theme!! Holst only finished one symphony and wrote another unfinished. I love that his music was inspired by poets and writers that I love such as Keats and Thomas hardy! he was a frail and troubled man. I adore his setting of I vow to thee my country, and would have put that in but it is not a symphony!!

    • That’s the retired teacher in me!! Can’t miss an opportunity to add a bit of information to my blogs. Holst was born in Cheltenham where i live and his music is inspirational. he was also a very frail and complex character which moves me.
