There’s much more to know about the life and music of Gustav Holst than just his most famous orchestral suite, The Planets.
While conducting the Hammersmith Socialist Choir, Holst met Isobel Harrison, a beautiful soprano. He fell in love with her; she was at first not impressed by him, but she came round and they were married. This portrait of Isobel is in the Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum.
