MIchael Story has skillfully re-scored the finale from Holst's Second Suite in F making the combination of "Dargason Dance" and "Greensleeves" approachable for young band. The key signature is better suited for this level and the variations have been mildly adapted for accessibility. The energy of the original has been retained. Don't miss this classic band work on your next program. (3:00).
