Details

Mercury, The Winged Messenger, written in 1916 is the 3rd movement of Gustav Holst's iconic 7-movement suite. It is light, flitting and scherzando in style. 

Mr. Sauer has used a very ingenious scoring technique for the brass to keep the music flowing for the very fast, long phrases used by the composer.

Instrumentation is for:

4 Trumpets in C (1st part includes Piccolo)
4 Horns
3 Trombones
Euphonium (Tenor Tuba), 2 Tubas
Timpani and Glockenspiel

Mr. Sauer has also transcribed other selections (also available on this site) from Holst's Planets Suite including:

Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn and Uranus.

In addition - the entire Suite of six movements can be purchased at a discount from the retail prices.
