    3rd Section is A Cambrian Suite by Michael Ball. Currently £55 on Just Music. Shall we be cynical and see if the price mysteriously goes up later today??!!

    I think its a poor show that there's no McCabe or RSA in the list.

    (disclaimer - I have absolutely nothing against any of the pieces or composers that have been selected!)
    Euphonium Lite and GJG like this.

    Wasn't Cambrian suite 4th section not long ago?

    2002 4th section final

    Perhaps it was selected because it was alphabetically next to Cambridge Variations in a list somewhere...
  17. Used for fourth section at Pontins not too long ago.

    Too easy for third section surely?

    It was 4th section National finals piece in 2002. I like the piece but I thought it was a little soon to get it out again!

    Still waiting on confirmation of the pieces.
