Tuba part from 2nd Suite in F - IV. Fantasia on the Dargason for brass quintet

3 minutes

Possibly the most well known of the movements from the 2nd Suite in F - Fantasia on the Dargason. This is mainly because Holst used the same tune in the famous Suite Pauls suite. I love how Holst combined the compound duple and simple triple rhythms in this piece. Hope you enjoy. If you perform or record please let me know. Constructive reviews always welcome.

04/06/06 In answer to the last two 'reviews': In the first case this is not a song, (I think this shows the standard of the musical education of the reviewer). He says it does not sound right with brass instruments, a fair comment except that Holst wrote the piece for brass and woodwind. The other reviewer says that I missed part of the 6/8 melody line over the greenselves tune, not the case I'm afraid, there are places in the original where the 6/8 tune stops, and the bass line is correct.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
