Oh, I'm so glad you like this work, John: it's possibly my favourite Holst, and certainly one of my favourite choral symphonies. I find it mystifying why so many people dislike it, even Vaughan Williams only expressing a 'cold admiration' (in return, Holst had trouble understanding 'Flos Campi', which to me is about VW's most Holstian work). I only know the Boult recording, so very much look forward to hearing this one.
