Mercury, the Winged Messenger

I have already mentioned my admiration for Gustav Holst’s Planets suite in “Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity.” Below is “Mercury, the Winged Messenger” by the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Richard Hickox.

I am not sure whether “Mercury” is my second favorite movement from The Planets, but it is a contender.
