    Questions were asked in Parliament - he was accused of sedition. On this score Holst would mark indications of instrumentation in red ink and his amanuenses worked from this to produce the full orchestral score. The full score had been lost soon after Purcell's death inand had only recently been found. However, Holst is said to have considered the short, subdued but powerful tone poem his greatest masterpiece.

    The Parish Council would like to acknowledge the work done to create this new site. He accounted first for all of the money and goods coming in, including the sale of produce and purchase and birth of livestock. The rent payable quit the tenant of any further labour obligations and from the 15th century onwards rentals or quit rentals are found among manorial records. And in the coming rebellion against the Prussians in England, Catholics will need such fiery allies to save them from the tame surrender of Nonconformist and Agnostic labour leaders, and to steel our spirits in these days when 'whoseover killeth us will think that he doeth God a service'.

    His works from this period include the Choral Symphony to words by Keats a Second Choral Symphony to words by George Meredith exists only in fragments. He regularly played the organ for the Sunday Mass and his daughter Imogen - right in their cottage - the celloand they put on Whitsuntide concerts which were the origin of the Thaxted Festival. Cross and continue straight until a footbridge. Worship and beauty are not to be despised, but worship divorced from social righteousness is an abomination to God. The results were at first discouraging, but soon a new spirit appeared and the music of Morley College, together with its offshoot the 'Whitsuntide festival'
