Gustav Holst’s luminous Ode to Death responded to the immeasurable suffering of World War I. Learn about the underlying causes of the conflict, and grasp how the horrific human cost of the war reflected a tragic clash between archaism and modernity. In Ode to Death, experience the melding of Holst’s music with Walt Whitman’s elegiac text, and study the musical means whereby Holst evokes a haunting impression of unfathomable loss and waste.
