    Dear All

    a second errata for Coventry Variations has been issued. For those of you that emailed Rosehill, they should send this through to you directly.
    The changes are as follows - the odd squiggle should be a natural and the boxes have appeared next to stylised text...hopefully this makes sense!

    How unbelievably shoddy is this.

    Let's wait for No.3 shall we?!?!

    Thanks for putting this up....

    This errata is longer than the last one! I wonder, does it put right the dodgy notes caused by some of the previous "corrections"?

    So we've got TWO erratas - anyone care to count the total number of mistakes? I'll wager they number in the region of 50.

    ....And just two weeks before the first areas! Still I suppose it is only 4 1/2 months since the piece was announced.

    Errata No.3 due to arrive mid-April :!:

    :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

    I just hope for the sake of all the bands that have played this out this year that the Xylophone players noticed that they were in the wrong key in a large number of bars!!!

    The email I got from Rosehill had both Errata 1 and Errata 2 attached for completeness.

    They still haven't added the errata that says Variation 6 should be slower, damn :(

    Thanks very much for bringing this info to the attention of everyone.

    It seems as if it should have been made public by rosehill much earlier.

    Yes it was Prague that had loads of errata (erratae, errati, erratas...?)
    We kept getting more mistakes sent right til the rehearsal before the area!

    (not that you would have noticed much :twisted: )

    Promting Steve Sykes to say after his adjuication at the Midlands - "the one error they missed was "substitute the R for an L in the title"" :lol:

    "errata" is fine, as it is already plural (one erratum, several errata) :wink:

    We must look on the bright side... it could have been expensive to buy, then you would really begrudge receiving errata so late on!

    PS I could have sworn that the top Eb and Db on sop were mistakes, if they weren't, they will be next Saturday!

    In fairness, according to the covering note received along with the Errata sheets, It would seem that the delay has been caused not so much by Rosehill directly, rather by them having to wait for Mr. Tovey to respond with clarifications to their requests.

    I know!! I can sleep easy tonight now!! :wink:

    In fairness, regardless of whether Mr Tovey cooperated as soon as possible or not, as publishers and suppliers, the responsiblilty falls to Rosehill.
    We were sold a faulty product, that failed to be repaired until the second attempt. (Am I speaking too soon, touch wood and all that!)
    This may seem a little harsh, but considering the price, which I do believe to be fair, would only be acceptable if we were receiving a quality and error free product.
    Sorry to go on.

    I'm not disputing the fact that the quality of typesetting and proofreading in the original product release leaves a lot to be desired. Nevertheless, if it were subsequently found necessary to issue Errata sheets, and in order to do so the publisher had to seek guidance from the composer (This seems to suggest that some of the errors were possibly not typesetting errors, but existed in the original manuscript), then the publishers may not be entirely to blame for delaying the issue until answers are received from the composer.

    I am not attempting to defend the initial quality of the publication, but I am commending the publishers, if this is the case, for wanting to obtain clarification from the composer before releasing errata, instead of "taking a guess".

    From what Rosehill have told me Gareth, you are right to commend Rosehill for not taking any 'guesses'. I second you on this, for what it's worth.

    See you in the bar on the 20th perchance?

    Any clarification with the composer should have been made before publishing. My point was, that Rosehill shouldn't have published the piece in that state in the first place.

    By all means, commend them for hopefully getting it right...

    Not the first time when it was published...
    Not the second attempt when the first errata was released...
    But the third time when the 2nd errata was released!!!

    Yes, they do need a little commendation for getting it right this third time!
