A Moorside Suite is scored for a musically mature ensemble. As a contest piece for the 1928 British Band Festival Championship,

Holst resisted the temptation to write difficult brass virtuoso technical passages laced with double and triple tonguing.

Instead, he challenged the musicality of each band and its players by writing parts requiring mature tone, a highly developed sense of nuance of phrasing, and superior control and mastery of legato playing.
