    A century ago James Causley Windram, then band director of the 5th Northumberland Fusiliers and, later, the Coldstream Guards, asked Gustav Holst if he could transcribe some of the composer's Hymns from the Rig Veda for military band. Always a band advocate, Holst readily agreed. Two of Windram's settings, Hymn of the Travellers and Battle Hymn have been edited for modern instrumentation while a third, Hymn to Manas, has been arranged from Holst's original choral setting by Jon Ceander Mitchell for inclusion in this thoroughly characteristic suite.
