Lost and Found Holst manuscripts to be returned to England

The original Holst manuscripts found in our library in 2017 will be returned to the composer’s homeland.  Symphonia members decided at their Annual General Meeting that the most appropriate course of action for their future care was for them to be housed in the Holst Birthplace Museum in Cheltenham. There they will be available for public viewing under the correct environmental conditions, and will also be accessible to musicologists and Holst Scholars for research purposes. The Holst Birthplace Museum is a small, independent museum, set up in 1975 in the Regency house where Holst was born in 1874.
