Notes & Reviews:

The neglected chamber opera "The Wandering Scholar" is a brief comedy with no overture or "big tunes." Holst used charming folk-rhythms and simple melodies to tell the story of an assignation between a priest and a married woman, which is broken up by a wandering scholar. A must for the Holst completist.
