A great master in British music history, Gustav Holst (1874-1934) is considered one of the most important band composers of all time.Suite for Military Band (1909) and Second Suite in Eb for Military Band (1911) are known as definitive sequel band works and are still widely performed.However, Holst's most familiar melody is likely Jupiter from The Planets. Both the suite and movement are globally revered.This arrangement is written colorfully to promote musicality for various bands with consideration of mixed grade levels.A part is written for grade 2.5 and B for 1.5 players. B can be played by elementary or junior high students. There is much repetition for effective playing that is not overly challenging. Young players can learn the importance of maintaining a steady, consistent sound for simple and repetitive parts. This work should bring their band experience to the next level.
