Program Notes

Jupiter – The Bringer of Jollity is introduced by a genial syncopated dance, appropriately so since a happy and festive mood is maintained throughout this movement. Holst's love of English folk song and dance is readily demonstrated here. The middle section presents a surprising contrast -- a majestic flowing melody in 3/4 meter which Holst later used for a patriotic song.

Performance Notes

The opening chorale works as a great teaching tool by itself if you didn't want to perform the whole arrangement.
