Inspired by two folk songs from the arranger's Dutch heritage, Two Holland Tales is a piece that combines both lyrical and upbeat sections. "Daar waren twee koningskinderen" (There Were Two Royal Children) is the opening lyrical movement which displays the talents of both the wind and brass sections. The piece then moves into "Toen ik op Nederlands bergen stond" (I Once Stood on the Netherland's Hills). This is a fast movement in 6/8 and features the percussion section. A great arrangement for young band.
