Composer: Holst, Gustav
Transcriber: DeGoti, Mark
Number of Trumpets: 8
Duration: 4 minutes and 20 seconds
The British classic piece for band beautifully transcribed for eight B-flat trumpets. Optional percussion includes snare drum, bass drum, cymbals and triangle. This recording is at the traditional British tempo of 128 beats (half notes) per minute. American tempos are traditionally a little slower than this, making the piece a difficultly level of '5' rather than '6'.
