Welcome the New Year in the glorious surroundings of St Albans Cathedral.

Gustav Holst’s The Planets is an enduringly popular English classic that sketches the astrological character of seven other planets.

John Williams’ Flying Theme, and the Strauss waltzes, are probably even more well-loved than the Holst!
