Apollo, Bringer of Life was commissioned by Jung-Ho Pak and the Cape Cod Symphony as a completion of sorts to Holst's The Planets. While written using Holst's gargantuan orchestra, this can be played (utilizing the included cue notes) by a smaller, standard orchestra. The movement sums up Holst's suite, and includes quotes from every movement, which revolve contrapuntally around the Apollo theme, culminating in a triumphant final presentation of the hymn from Jupiter. While written in my compositional voice, it uses Holst's orchestrational palette and techniques so as to still fit within the larger suite.
