Reference: CD HLL 7535
Description: Based on the apocryphal Acts of St. John, Holst's 22-minute work from 1919 is an unconventional religious work notable for exaltation rather than dutiful piety. It's become a relative rarity so we thought we'd offer a rare new recording. Texts included. Roderick Williams (baritone), Hallé Choir, Hallé Youth Choir, Hallé Orchestra; Mark Elder.
