St Paul's Suite (Op. 29, No. 2) originally titled Suite in C,[1] is a composition for string orchestra by the English composer Gustav Holst. It was written in 1912, but due to revisions wasn't published until 1922. It is named after the St Paul's Girls' School in the United Kingdom, where Holst was Director of Music from 1905 to 1934. It was written in gratitude to the school which had built a soundproof studio for him. He had written many pieces for his students at St. Paul's, but this suite is the most famous.[2]
