Goodness, that is QUITE a "tear".

I still haven't moved past the Da Capo symphony series, plus a few scattered works that I've collected during my Holmboe-quest.

Indeed. I have no idea when I’ll get around to these recordings, but it’s nice to have them whenever I get the hankering to hear this composer’s music.
“I really would like to go to Marmorkirken. It was there that I heard music for the first time, and that experience is like a heavenly vision for me.” - Rued Langgaard

My understanding of the third is it’s his complete culmination of the ‘infinity series’ he had been experimenting with for a decade (?).

The Third is in many respects a synthesis of experiments carried out in previous works. But the real culmination of this stylistic period, I would say, is Twilight for orchestra from a couple of years later. Get the recording on Dacapo; the recording on Kontrapunkt is not competitive.
