FYI: Music theorists still debate about the specific, defining characteristics of what a “chaconne” is.  Most agree that it is a repeated harmonic pattern, though Holst’s chaconne presents more of a repeated bass pattern which some classify as more of a “passacaglia.”  Regardless, it is important to recognize Holst’s incessant 8-measure idea that pervades not only the “Chaconne,” but also the rest of the suite – can you hear it?

Holst’s 1st Suite in Eb was originally composed for band, and has three movements: Chaconne, Intermezzo, and March.  Please listen to all movements to give you a better perspective of the purpose, sentiment, and effect Holst sought for his “Chaconne” to have.
