    What pieces would you like to see at the 2020 areas?

    Slight correction needed! MOTS is indeed written for 25 not 26, as the 2nd Flugel replaces the Repiano part. The piece is perhaps a bit too long to use as a set piece. 19 mins. 20 bands would take 9-10 hours, I would guess.

    All of his arrangements registered with PRS give ‘Boosey and Co’ as the publisher. As that company presumably didn’t publish under that name after the creation of Boosey and Hawkes in 1930, that would fit nicely with the dates found on Ancestry.

    Urgent Advice on how to improve range and clarity on highnotes

    wind band contest pieces for brass band?

    (Many may already know that much of the Second Suite was originally part of his "St. Paul Suite" for string orchestra.) What a great post! But my OCD means I need to point out that Holst's St Paul's Suite was written after his Second Suite so this 'borrowing' is the other way round.

    wind band contest pieces for brass band?

    I don’t know how many wind bands there are worldwide, but the USA and Japan have about 20,000 each! There are hundreds and hundreds of new wind pieces published each year. Numbers of Brass bands are fairly tiny in comparison.
