A Moorside Suite for Brass Quintet, by Gustav Holst was composed in 1927 as a work for brass band, commissioned by the BBC for the National Brass Band Festival Competitions at the Crystal Palace. The suite comprises three movements - Scherzo, Nocturne and March. (Wikipedia)

The success of this work encouraged many other British composers of the era to write for the brass band.

This work of about 15 minutes in length has been wonderfully arranged by Mark J. LaFratta for standard brass quintet of 2 Trumpets in B-flat, Horn, Trombone (bass clef) and Tuba. For advanced performers.
