The Second Suite in F for Military Band (Op. 28, No. 2) is Gustav Holst’s second and last suite for concert band. Although performed less frequently than the First Suite in E-flat, it is still a staple of the band repertoire. The Second Suite was written in 1911 and first published in 1922. It is arranged for clarinet quintet of Eb, 2 Bb, alto and bass clarinet (Alternative Bb clarinet parts provided for both the Eb and the alto, so the suite could be performed by 4 Bb clt and 1 bass clt.) I have arranged the longer outer movements so that players have a chance of a rest (to breath!!) so that all 5 are not playing tutti all the time. In mvt 4, the repeated 8 bar figure is shared amongst all the players. The mvts are: 1."March: Morris dance, Swansea Town, Claudy Banks" 2."Song Without Words, ’I’ll Love My Love’" 3."Song of the Blacksmith" 4."Fantasia on the Dargason" (incorporating "Greensleeves") Also available as a wind quintet arrangement.
