News has emerged that a Test Piece chosen for the Swiss National Brass Band Championships was supplied to all the bands without an errata. ‘The Once and Future King’ by Andrew Baker was used by the Swiss Brass Band Federation as the 3rd section Test Piece at their recent National Championships. The piece was extremely well received by the audience, but has also hit home with the players and the organisers for the quality of the layout and printing and because no errata was needed. Gavin Pritchard (co-owner of the work’s publishers, JAGRINS) said: “In the current era of the Brass Band movement, it seems to be unheard of for a band to buy a test piece for a national competition without the piece being followed by an erratum (even Kapitol Promotions have a section on their website dedicated to Publishers’ errata!). To add insult to injury, most of the time there are several erratas, some even given out just days before the event!! It is hoped that this news item will contribute to putting this piece and the service the bands received, at the top of the pile.” Maybe now, other contest organisers will take note that errata-free Test Pieces are achievable and that British Brass Bands and the contest organisers themselves could and should, in the very near future, also be treated with the same care and respect that was displayed with the publishing of Andrew Baker’s piece ‘The Once and Future King’.
