Best of British Classical Music: an A-Z
'Jerusalem' is another J which is certainly closer to us geographically, but we couldn’t miss out Holst’s The Planets. There are so many good moments in ‘Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity’ that it’s hard to fit them all in, but it’s a must listen, with its cheeky glockenspiel cameo appearances and its swelling horn waltz. And Holst set the words to ‘I Vow to Thee My Country’ to the tune in the middle.
