An extremely atmospheric tone poem depicting the heath portrayed in Thomas Hardy's novel "The Return of the Native". "A place perfectly accordant with man's nature - neither ghastly, hateful, nor ugly; neither common-place, unmeaning nor tame; but, like man, slighted and enduring; and withal singularly colossal and mysterious in its swarthy monotony!" (Thomas Hardy - The Return of the Native).
Holst regarded this work as his masterpiece, although the public preferred "The Planets"! This edition is faithful to Holst's original; heindicated that the following instruments were optional - 2nd oboe, Contra bassoon, Horns 3 and 4, Trumpet 3 and Tuba.
