Gustav Holst and The Planets Suite

I recently visited the Holst Birthplace Museum in Cheltenham and was fascinated to learn about this British composer’s life. I’ve long been a fan of his Planets Suite and have occasionally wondered how he was inspired to write music about seven planets with their correct, traditional astrological characteristics.

Trying to understand this has troubled humanity since time began. Fear of the unknown, of upsetting gods or goddesses and the concept of divine punishment has
