Gustav Hoist was drawn particularly to choral settings of texts of mystic origin, and "The Hymn of Jesus" now recorded for the first t ime is his finest achievement in this style. In spite of its complexities i t has great directness and a rtistic unity. Much of its bea uty is evident at the first hearing, and the closer acquaintance that is necessary to the full comprehension of this splendid work can be gathered from these records, which perpetuate a magnificent performance of one of the outstanding choral compositions of the present century.
