Luna– is actually taken from the Holst Suite for Military Band in Eb. It was added to the original work for a gig where we had to play under a huge model of the moon! In the style of Translucency and other pastel wordless vocals, we have a cut down ensemble of Soprano (voice) clarinet and trombone, supported by two trombones, bass and piano.Purchase PDF
Mars– and easy enough big aggressive swinger. The solo trumpet part is crazy high, but would work down an octave too.Purchase PDFPurchase MP3
