    Very kind, thank you, but strictly speaking this piece isn't eligible since it was published in 2007 and first peformed at the Swiss Nationals last year as well. But many thanks for the nomination!

    In any case, there can be only one winner - Rococo Variations by Edward Gregson :clap:

    It has to be Concertino for Brass Band and yes i know it was used in Swiss Nationals but it was called Concerto for Brass Band. I was at Nationals and it was a great piece to listen to and a brilliant test for the bands.

    I'd have to go for Gareth Wood's "Actaeon" (although I realise not many will have heard it yet!)

    I agree it is a good piece but not eligible, I'm afraid :(

    I'll nominate Edward Gregson's 'Rococo Variations' as there wasn't a great deal of new original competition works produced this year.

    I'd like to nominate Ken McCoy's arrangement of the traditional Russian Theme Minka. It won Tony Philipp a new cornet at last week's U.S. Open.

    Given how new it is I'll try to get a link to the recording up soon...but I wanted to make sure I got the nomination in by the deadline.

    Another fine piece, but as it was premiered at the 2007 Europeans I'm afraid it falls outside the qualifying period :(
