Written during Holst's time working at the St. Paul's Girls School, this influencial piece originally written for string orchestra has been beautifully transcribed for clarinet choir. Matt Johnston keeps much of the same colors and effects from the original, taking advantage of the homogeneity of the clarinet choir, from top to bottom.
