Holst’s first major orchestral work is a superb pastoral piece, displaying early hints of his greatness. In it, Holst conjures up an affectionate musical tribute to the countryside near his home which had so inspired his youth. At the centre of the symphony is a heartfelt elegy for the great designer, poet and Socialist visionary, William Morris, who was one of Holst's great heroes.
