Gustav Holst spent a good portion of his musical life dealing with students and other non-professional musicians. In 1903 he succeeded his good friend Ralph Vaughan Williams as the director of the school orchestra at James Allen's Girls' School in London. Two years later he became musical director at the St. Paul's Girls' School, a post he kept for the rest of his life. Along with his teaching, Holst continued to compose in his spare time, and around 1907, began to explore English and Scottish folk music. Those folk tunes started making their way into compositions like the St. Paul's Suite for string orchestra, written in 1912-13 for his students at the St. Paul's School.

The suite opens with a slightly dark Jig, based on a memorably rustic tune.

This arrangement is for standard string quartet, with an optional bass part.
