Trombone Ensemble Choir - Advanced Intermediate - Digital Download
Composed by Gustav Holst (1874-1934). Arranged by Ronald Barron. 21st Century, 20th Century, Romantic Period. Score, Set of Parts. 16 pages. Published by Cherry Classics Music (S0.685547).

Item Number: S0.685547

The “Evening-Watch” was written in 1925, when Holst lived in Thaxted, England

having had to temporarily leave his teaching duties because of overwork and illness. This setting of Henry Vaughan’s ‘Dialogue between the Body and the Soul’ was too 

austere for listeners of its day and it remained out of print for thirty years, until 1965. Its mood of calm strength and passionate resignation sounds as if it belongs to the 1960’s. 

This beautiful arrangement for 8-part trombone choir by Ronald Baron seems altogether appropriate given the instrument’s vocal character, its frequent use for music at funerals and Holst’s other musical passion; his short career as a trombonist.

The 4 minute piece is appropriate for moderately advanced performers.
