I've contacted the publisher (R Smith & Co.), and been told that there is no official errata listing for "Diversions on a Bass theme". Whilst there seem to be very few possible errors in "Diversions" (certainly compared to some other recent offerings) there is one particular point that concerns me, and I was wondering if any other tMP'ers involved in the First Section Finals had any thoughts on it. It occurs in bar 389 and involves Solo/Rep. cornets. The printed 'D' nat. produces an "unusual" (!) dissonance aginst the rest of the chord at that point. (Although in fairness no more unusual than some of the other dissonances in the piece ... ). In the Grimethorpe ("Brass from the Masters") recording the note has been "corrected" to a 'Db'. Does anyone know if there is any official source for this alteration? I suppose it would be too much to expect any sort of pronouncement from the adjudicators as to what they expect ... It bothers me, partially because the phrase (387-390) is a repetition of the one already played by the Troms./Euphs./Basses at 377-380, and in order to match, then the minim at 389 should (in theory) be a 'D' nat. as printed. However the resulting dissonance is slightly out of context with the rest of the piece (to my ears, at any rate), and I would have thought that the note would not have been amended on the Grimethorpe recording without some sort of authority ... Any thoughts ... ?
