Abstract

The purpose of this thesis was to create a new transcription of Gustav Holst’s Saturn from The Planets. Through the study of techniques used by George Smith in his transcriptions of Mars and Jupiter, as well as techniques developed through the standard process of transcribing for wind bands a new transcription has been written. Although Holst himself was discouraged by the popular success of The Planets, and did not consider it to be one of his best works, he did consider Saturn his favorite movement. Musicians have had access to the Mars and Jupiter wind band transcriptions for decades, but have not had access to Holst’s favorite movement. Benjamin J.
