By Gustav Holst

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/the-planets-full-score-sheet-music/3491707?ac=1&aff_id=61215

Orchestra full orchestra and double SSA chorus
Composed by Gustav Holst (1874-1934). Full Orchestra (Full Score); Larger Works; Masterworks. Dover Edition. 20th Century. Full score. With full score notation. 192 pages. Published by Dover Publications (AP.6-292770).

Item Number: AP.6-292770

ISBN 0486292770. 9 1/8x1214 inches.

Spectacular symphonic suite, scored for large orchestral forces and a wordless chorus, is divided into seven movements, the music of each embodying the astrological and mystical qualities of a different planet. Remarkable emotional sweep and innovative techniques have made the work a staple of the orchestral repertoire. Only full-size score available.

    Excellent layout. Print large enough to see, though a massive score: 34-staff opening page score supporting 41 individual parts, + the std 5-part string section, not to mention the eventual appearance of 4 staves to support a 6-7 part women's chorus! This is an unabridged republication of...

    the original publication, and there do appear small spots here and there where content fades for a tiny instant. I have not seen such an instance yet which seems to be significant enough to call into question what the content is. A score of this magnitude from an original publisher I believe would cost well over $100, so at $18.95 SMP has even offered a better price than Dover. Thank you SMP!

    This is a great tool for composers/teachers alike. As a composer in college I love using this score! Besides the great Orchestration and interesting and unusual instruments it has such memorable and great melodies! Everyone knows"Mars: the Bringer of War" after hearing the first few beats because of...

    how powerful it is. Personally I feel any music lover should have this score on their shelf. Holst is a great orchestrater and his music is great for bands and orchestras alike! Also the book and the print are big enough that it is comfortable to read and one doesn't need a magnifying glass to read it! Excellent score!
