    The usual unreliable source - 4br. Obviously no bearing at all to the judges opinions

    Usually I would agree, but they seem to favour Cory equally as much as they do Dyke, and had them in 2nd place to Dyke's 1st.

    Anyway, Well done Cory!!!

    After listening to every performance this weekend I must say what an excellent advert this has been for the World Wide Brass Band Movement. Now let's all jump on board and keep up the momentum.

    Britain still leads the way, but the gap is reducing fast. What a great weekend. Thanks to all.

    Totally agree

    Dyke & Cory could fart 3 blind mice very poorly & would still be placed 1 & 2 by that boring sycophant!

    Anyway, congrats to Cory

    I thought Black Dyke were great yesterday. Paul Duffy the best of the sopranos IMO. Bert van Thienen a bit away from his usual very high standard. I thought that Black Dykes performance was more transparent (for lack of a better word) than Cory who as usually made a very sonourous performance.

    Didn't hear Cory today (streaming-problems here) but thought Eikanger were very impressive as was Oberösterreich.

    Red Priest left me slightly cold. Didn't do it for me in comparison to Wilbys other works.

    Beside Black Dyke (that I had higher), I oddly enough had all other placings correct (I am usually way off mark in my own humble adjuications).

    What a great contest. I think standards have risen dramatically for the lower ranked bands in the last decade, and I didn't hear a single band that didn't have a lot of quality to offer this weekend.

    Bring on Montreux 2011 (and hopefully another live-feed on the internet)

    I must admit, I had Eikanger 1 point ahead of Cory and Dyke yesterday but today the temperature was turned up and Cory came out on top. BRAVO.

    The Phillip Sparke piece was absolutely superb and an ideal world premier. That may have been the reason it had the edge on Eikanger who played fabulous rendition of Concerto Grosso.

    As for Dyke I tend to agree with Euphoria, not an 'in your face', Wilby piece. Sorry but Red Priest did not do it for me either.

    Overall a fabulous weekend.

    Good performance too from 4barsrest who not only had the wrong winner (again), published the result well after TMP and went to "twitt" that Cory had done it 4th in a row when it is only a hat-trick (3 in a row).

    I've a feeling that "Red Priest" may be one of those Wilby pieces that grows on you with repeated listening, rather than one which makes an instant mark.

    Its the kiss of death from 4barsrest = when they tip dyke to win they rarely do!
