from Holst’s Choral Hymns from the "Rig Veda"–one of the holy books of Hinduism–for SATB and orchestra. Original one step higher. I was fascinated by the nobility of the music, which hopefully I’ve retained in transcribing it for brass band. The three movements are I. Battle Hymn, II. To an Unknown God, and III. Funeral Hymn. NOTE: This movement is in 7/4, with Holst's markings for each bar being either 4+3 or 3+4. When Sibelius encounters the dashed "sub-bar" lines, it refuses to show multi-bar rests in the parts. If you would like parts with more user-friendly rests (I certainly would!), drop me an email and I'll send you a set. If anyone knows of a work-around, I'd appreciate your letting me know.
