Holst music

Have just "discovered" Gustav Hollst's Brook Green Suite,originally written for string orchestra. Not as well known as his "St Paul's Suite" it is still restful relaxing music. I have arranged it for wind   quintet. It seems to work well. 
Available on my score exchange pages.

Pachelbel Cannon in D

Arranged for wind quintet and clarinet quintet.
Popular for weddings!!

I have tried to avoid the breathing difficulties in transcribing this piece from strings to winds, by dovetailing the melody between the instruments, as well as moving the repetitive base line.

Vivaldi:Four Seasons

I have arranged many of the movements from the Four Seasons for wind quintet.
I have also done some of them for flute,clarinet and sax quintet. 
The string parts have been simplified to make this music more available to the average player. 
Individual movements can be found on my Score Exchange pages. 

I have also done a Suite of  4 of the More Popular Movements which is easier and shortened (omitting the difficult bits.It is available for wind quintetfluteclarinet and sax quintets.
These are more accessible to school pupils and less advanced players.

The following are complete arrangements:(for the more advanced player)

Spring (3 mvts) arranged wind quintet

Spring (3 mvts) arranged flute quintet

Spring (3 mvts) arranged clarinet quintet

Autumn (3 mvts) arranged wind quintet

Winter (2 mvts) mvts I & II: arranged wind quintet.

Summer:These three movements appear to be the most difficult to arrange for wind instruments, so I haven't done any of them as yet!!

Other arrangements,combinations of instruments will be added idc.

10 Popular Christmas Carols for wind quintet

Just in time for Christmas.

I have tried to move the lead line between instruments rather than always giving it to the flute.
