James Ancona's arrangement of Mercury from Holst's masterpiece The Planets re-creates the playful and rhythmic character of the original orchestration in the percussion ensemble setting.

Originally performed in 1996 in Star of Indiana's Brass Theatre, Mercury is a harmonically complex piece yet very listenable at the same time. It requires ten players and relies on clever, integrated scoring to achieve its overall sound. Fun for performers, and accessible to audiences.

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.
