This delightful and joyful disc presents all of Gustav Holst's Christmas music on a single disc for the first time, including the world première recordings of a couple of carols. The Christmas music ranges from much-loved examples such as 'In the Bleak Midwinter' and 'Personent Hodie' through to the substantial 'Christmas Day'. The carols are complemented by organ music by Holst - the Four Voluntaries, as well as an arrangement for organ of the 'Scherzo', written as part of the composer's unfinished second Symphony.
