Nice piece
"Nice arrangement. Very playable and at the same time it is nice to listen to. One comment about the notation. Just before section "B" there is no indication that the music is to be played in "cut time." Our group ran through this the first time and we were caught off guard because the melody was so slow. We discovered that cutting the time at the 2nd key change resolved this issue. Just be aware of this. Perhaps Mr. Smith can make the adjustment to the copy. Otherwise it is a nice piece."

Product Information

Holst, Gustav – The Evening Watch for Trombone Octet.

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 arrangement for 8-part trombone choir 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.

This 4-minute arrangement is appropriate for moderately advanced performers.

Listen to a live performance of this great music.
