This handsome volume runs to some 200 pages and is beautifully produced in every respect. It contains full-sized facsimiles of Savitri and The Wandering Scholar, short introductions by the editor and textual collations giving a detailed comparison of the MSS with the published versions. Holst's musical handwriting was clear and strong, and in this volume it establishes a vivid presence. A special sort of magic is involved here . MUSICAL TIMES
