I didn't spot this particular recording available for sale. I found a
number of references on the web to playing of the piece, often by a college
band. The composer reference seems to always be "Holst/Curnow." Was this
originally written for orchestra, and this is the "standard" (for want of a
better word) band arrangement? I know Holst's works cross platforms quite
often. Several years ago, I conducted both of the Suites for Military Band
in arrangements for orchestra. Worked fairly well.
