Geoff Diggines writes: "Holst’s over-recorded work with its inclusion of a decidedly parochial patriotic hymn (as though a group of astronauts in deep space suddenly start flying the flag and standing up – anamorphically - for Queen and Nation)".
Oh, come off it. The fitting of tune to words was done about 6 years later, so that the imputation of intent is gratuitous. The term anamorphic refers either to rock formation or a form of image distortion; I can't quite see its significance in the quoted sentence.
