When investigating the music of Gustav Holst, you ought to hear The Planets before the symphonic poem Indra, the "St. Paul's Suite" before the ballet music from The Lure, and "Edgon Heath" before the Interlude from Act Three of the opera Sita. But if you are already familiar with Holst's best-known works and most of his lesser-known works as well - and you liked what you've heard - you should by all means try this disc of Holst rarities with David Atherton leading either the London Philharmonic or the London Symphony.

Gustav Holst's youthful enthusiasm for Wagner is reflected in his ebullient Walt Whitman overture written in 1899. Shortly afterwards he composed the Cotswolds Symphony which embraces hints of contemporary British folk music but is dominated by the slow movement, a profound elegy for the utopian socialist William Morris. The second movement is an elegy on the death of Holst's friend William Morris, and is what the symphony is best known for. It is truly moving and at one point reaches a plunge into a despair worthy of Mahler. the final two movements return to the jolly and pastoral mood of the first movement. A Winter Idyll is a Romantic work, more or less a concert overture and is closest stylistically to Indra. They enhance Holst's mixed bag of minor compositions, making this album worthy for any classical collection.
