Gustav Holst (21 September 1874 - 25 May 1934) was a British composer and was a music teacher for over 20 years. Holst is most famous for his orchestral suite The Planets.Having studied at the Royal College of Music in London,his early work was influenced by Ravel,Grieg, Richard Strauss, and Ralph Vaughan Williams, but most of his music is highly original, with influences from Hindu spiritualism and English folk tunes.Holst's music is well known for unconventional use of metre and haunting melodies.

In 1905, Holst was appointed Director of Music at St Paul's Girls' School in Hammersmith, London, where he composed the successful and still popular St Paul's Suite for the school orchestra in 1913.

St. Paul's Suite (Op. 29 no. 2) is a composition for orchestra. It was written in 1912, but due to revisions wasn't published until 1922.

The suite has four movements:

I. Jig: Vivace
II. Ostinato: Presto
III. Intermezzo: Andante con moto
IV. Finale (The Dargason): Allegro
