The British composer Gustav Holst's (1874-1934) wrote music inspired by ancient Hindu texts and poems. The Rig Veda is a set of over 1000 hymns – singing the praises of the sacred plant soma and gods like Varuna, Agni, and Indra – brought by Indo-European speaking peoples into India somewhere around 1500-1000 B.C. Holst set 14 of these hymns to music in his four groups of Choral Hymns, which were popular during his lifetime, but have seldom been performed since.In this performance, the three last group of hymns will be performed, all with different characters, from quiet and desolate to stirring and lively, building an alliance between East and West.
