Suite in B-flat by Gordon Jacob (1895-1986). For concert band (Piccolo, Flute 1, Flute 2, Oboe 1, Oboe 2, Bassoon 1, Bassoon 2, Eb Clarinet, Bb Clarinet 1, Bb Clarinet 2, Bb Clarinet 3, Alto Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Alto Saxophone 1, Alto Saxophone 2, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Cornet 1, Cornet 2, Cornet 3,). Band Music. Grade 5. Score only. Duration 12:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.S11021).

Suite in B-flat is in three movements. The first section is jaunty and lighthearted, the second is subdued and tranquil, whilst the third is a symphonic march which gives the bands plenty of chance to blow their socks off.

British composer Gordon Jacob ranks as one of the world's foremost contributors to the wind ensemble repertoire, with hundreds of works for military band as well as other types of musical groups. He earned his Doctor of Music degree and also taught counterpoint, orchestration and composition for 40 years at the Royal College of Music. He wrote band works along the lines of Gustav Holst and his good friend Vaughan Williams - not imitating their style but, as he said, "striving to come near to their spirit of adventure and independence of thought" in his own work. This suite was originally written for Brass Band in 1955 and was arranged for symphonic band in 1979. It has three movements, opening with a lighthearted March, followed by a subdued and tranquil movement entitled "Solemn Music." The suite closes with a symphonic march, which showcases the power of the wind ensemble.
