Gustav Holst always denied that Mars, the Bringer of War in his orchestral work The Planets (1914-16), was a direct response to the onset of war. Yet the snarling, bellicose opening and angry, sweeping main theme stir indelible images of warfare. A later movement, Jupiter – the Bringer of Jollity, confirmed the work’s identity with WWI as its melody became the hymn I Vow to Thee, My Country. The words, written by diplomat Cecil Spring Rice, were reworked in 1918 to reflect British losses: “The love that never falters, the love that pays the price/ The love that makes undaunted, the final sacrifice.”
