There are several candidates for the definitive Pluto musical score–Holst’s Ode to Death, based on the Whitman poem, When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d; or maybe even Holsts’ first mature composition, whose themes would be echoed in The Planets, the haunting Beni Mora Suite, based on Hichens’ The Garden of Allah–but IMHO there is only one possible musical score for the new Pluto images: Holst’s original The Planets. pluto
