Holst - A Somerset Rhapsody

'A Somerset Rhapsody' by Holst has been in my mind for 2 years. Did I dare attempt a recorder orchestra transcription? I would listen and follow the score at moments where ideas and projects came to a stop. Who would play it? The keys are going to be challenging. The thing is 10 min. long. These and other less printable thoughs swirled through me head when I would listen to this wonderful work yet again. 

It took two weeks of concentrated work but here it is with most of questions still unanswered. I had so much fun putting together the biggest puzzle, at least I hope the puzzle is together. Perhaps Holst is not laying in a different position in his grave.
