Edmund Rubbra et al. in Royal College of Music - 1921

from The music of Edmund Rubbra, page 9:

And Holst was able sometimes to gather together some players from the college who would perform anything that I wrote, and which Holst was interested in.  I recall an early song for voice and two violins – a curious combination – but he was very taken with it, and said, “we’ll hear that next lesson.”  So he brought in two violinists and a singer, and we listened to it.
