Rarities abound in this re-release of Holst’s choral music, expertly conducted by the late Sir David Willcocks.

‘The opportunity to hear again Sir David Willcocks directing these fine performances of works that reveal Holst’s gift for finding distinctive choral textures makes this a disc that collectors will want to snap up. The recording from the expert team of Christopher Palmer and Bob Auger is excellent.’ Bruce Reader – The Classical Reviewer, August 2016

‘the warmth and thrust of the music are beautifully caught…. The Hymn to Dionysus… a rarity…, makes a welcome and substantial fill-up…. Beautifully clean and atmospheric recording.’ Penguin Guide to Compact Discs
