Jupiter Hymn

(from The Planets)
Gustav Holst / arr. Johan de Meij
Gustav Holst
 
 

The 'Jupiter Hymn' comes from the fourth movement, "Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity" from the orchestral suite "THE PLANETS" by the English composer Gustav HOLST (l874 - 1934), written between 1914 and 1917. 'The Planets" was premiered in 1918 by Sir Adrian Boult and the Royal Philharmonic Society and remains one of the most colourful examples of our 20th-century orchestral literature.

The Hymn is very suitable to start your concert program; for more solemn occasions, the alternative ending may be used.
