    Champions Division: Music for Battle Creek – Philip Sparke
    First Division : A tribute to Badings – Rob Goorhuis
    Second Division: A Little Light Music – Philip Wilby
    Third Division: Hispaniola – Jan de Haan
    Fourth Division: Voices of Youth – Edward Gregson

    The Dutch Nationals will take place early December in Groningen.

    The first section piece is a tribute to Dutch composer Henk Badings, who was born 100 years ago this year. It was composed as the set test piece for the 2001 World Music contest in Kerkrade.

    I'm not familiar with the championship section piece, but guessing by it's name, I think it was composed for the Brass Band of Battle Creek? (apparently the piece isn't available yet...)
