Recorded in 2012 by the Harvard University Choir, the hymn “For the Splendor of Creation.” The tune Thaxted was adapted by the English composer Gustav Holst from the “Jupiter” movement of his symphonic work The Planets, Op. 32, written during World War One. Author Carl P. Daw, who served as the Executive Director of The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada from 1996 to 2009, wrote this text celebrating academic communities specifically for Holst’s stirring melody.
