Program Notes

In 1906, Ralph Vaughan Williams asked his friend and colleague Gustav Holst to write these hymns. The combination of these melodies results in a richly-colored and diverse concert setting with fanfare, canon, chorale and processional. A noble and fitting Holst tribute!

- Program Note by publisher


This is a setting of three hymns originally composed by the English composer Gustav HoIst (1874-1934) at the request of his countryman and friend Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958). This new concert work opens with a fanfare on Brookend that is immediately followed by a lyrical presentation of the same material. Next, a chorale version of Monk Street leads to a restatement of the opening fanfare material, The final hymn Stepney is presented as a British style processional march and concludes with another brief restatement of the opening fanfare. This inviting suite will provide many opportunities to develop expressive playing, and is very well suited to middle school players

Dedicated to the Edison Middle School (Massilon, OH) Eighth Grade band, Karen Martin, Director.
