Lets be frank that the UK's contribution to 20th Century music is massive. Buy this disc and listen to the solid / revelatory genius of Holst - of course it isn't Beethoven - he couldn't have written this. Listen to this exemplary performance, the Choral Symphony is very special - it might take a while to hook into Holst's style. Once the soprano starts to sing " Beneath my Palm tree by the Rivers side I sat a weeping etc" you should be captured.
Wetton and his forces match the currently unavailable Boult performance. Buy this
