The Planets

A recording from Salisbury Cathedral

The Planets (2024)

The Planets Project (2023) featured Holst’s Planets Suite in John Challenger’s new arrangement for the Salisbury Cathedral organ in work between several local schools, our Cathedral’s Education Department, and the music charity La Folia.

Now the music has been recorded for a special new double-release from Salisbury Cathedral: an audio album (available from 18 September, Salisbury Cathedral record label), and a full-length film – ‘The Planets – Out of Darkness’. In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Holst’s birth, the film will showcase John Challenger’s full arrangement of the Planets Suite on the Cathedral’s vibrant Father Willis organ, paired with night-time shots of the Cathedral’s unique interior.


Album available: Wednesday 18 September 2024

YouTube premiere: Wednesday 18 September 2024, 8pm.
