Fantasia on the "Dargason" is the finale from Gustav Holst's Second Suite in F. Here, it has been arranged for double reed choir (2 oboes, English horn, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon). The arrangement contains minimal edits to the original score allowing for the performers to interpret the work as they choose.

The opening solo is performed is the rich low register of the English horn followed by solo bassoon. Just as in the original work, the main theme is continuous, and the theme is passed around the ensemble to every part. The work concludes with a short and sweet duet between the contrabassoon and 1st oboe.

This arrangement is an excellent way to close out a university double reed studio recital or "Double Reed Day". 

If you have questions regarding the arrangement, feel free to contact the arranger on his website:
