Composed by Gustav Holst
for SSAATTBB unaccompanied

Holst originally wrote the piece in 1915 where it was performed once at Westminster Cathedral, but was then forgotten. The piece was re-discovered by Imogen Holst and the first concert performance given by the BBC Northern Singers in 1974 at the 27th Aldeburgh Festival.
