Quick Overview

This hard-hitting arrangement of Holst's classic from "The Planets" dispenses with any initial build-up and hits you with a wall of sound right from the first note! Probably the most famous classical piece in 5/4 meter, this takes all the powerful impact points and combines them into a massive chunk of sound.
