    Jupiter (Holst)

    Hi all,

    One of the first pieces I sequenced was Holst's 'Jupiter'. Although I don't think the rendering was that great, it always seemed to attract more downloads than any of my other files. It was done using soundfonts. The attraction, I assume, is simply the music itself.

    I recently decided to render it using GPO. The orchestra is very large: 2 piccolos, 2 flutes, 3 oboes, English Horn, 3 Clarinets, Bass Clarinet, 3 Bassoons, Double Bassoon, 6 French Horns, 4 Trumpets, 2 Tenor Trombones, Bass Trombone, Tenor Tuba (Euphonium ?), Bass Tuba, Percussion, Harp, Strings.

    I hope you enjoy it.

    Regards,

    Jack

    You're certainly gaining my admiration, Jack, for
    your willingness to tackle the larger projects and
    the tougher pieces... and for pulling it off each time
    with considerable skill.

    The "Jupiter" is a perennial favorite, and I'm not
    surprised it brings in an audience!

    My best,

    Hi Michael and David,

    Thanks very much for listening, and for your kind comments.

    There is a certain pleasure and satisfaction in trying to simulate a large orchestral sound. I'm never quite sure if I've achieved it.

    Best Regards,

    Jack

    This is great stuff here Jack.

    I have always loved the planets as Holst saw them.

    Thanks for dropping by, Ron. I appreciate your comments.

    I always have a problem deciding when to post something. I made another version of this, and was just trying to make a comparison again, but for now, I think I'll just leave it as is.

    Best Regards,

    Jack

    I have to admit that “Mars” is my favorite of Holst’s Planets, but Jupiter comes in number two. A big undertaking here, and nicely done.

    Hi Trent,

    Thanks for listening, and for your comment.

    So far, I've just done Jupiter and Venus, but I may get around to some of the others at some point.

    Regards,

    Jack:

    A large project to say the least. I admire your courage
    to tackle something that is so daunting, but beautiful.
    Very nice rendering. Every minute you invested has
    produced greater rewards.

    Great job, Jack.
