Gustav Holst was well known for his passionate interest in mysticism. Captivated by the"Apocryphal Acts of St. John," he learned Greek in order to read the original and make his own translation for his"Hymn of Jesus." When he became interested in the Hindu sacred books, he taught himself Sanskrit. He references each hymn with brief but informative commentary.

    The score is clean, easy to read, although the notation options by the composer are not allways the best (some unnecessary complexity).
