About 'Jupiter from The Planets'

Born:September 21, 1874, , Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Died:May 25, 1934, , London, United Kingdom
The Artist:Gustav Theodore Holst was an English composer, arranger and teacher. Best known for his orchestral suite The Planets, he composed a large number of other works across a range of genres.
Composition Date:1916
Composition Info:The Planets is a seven-movement orchestral suite by the English composer Gustav Holst.
The concept of the work is astrological rather than astronomical (which is why Earth is not included): each movement is intended to convey ideas and emotions associated with the influence of the planets on the psyche, not the Roman deities.

This is an arrangment of the main theme of the 'Jupiter' movement, "The Bringer of Jolity". But it is also well know as an British hymn, "I vow to thee, my county"
