Hi all, I was wondering if any other bands have been having difficulties with this piece. We have had a few runs through now (of both the original score, and also the 'new correct' score) and there are some glaring mistakes in both scores and some very contentious markings. There are obvious wrong notes in the 2nd Cornet parts at E on the first page of the 'new score', which although in the wrong place, seemed to work musically in the original. The are also wrong notes in the Horns, Flugel and Trombones at V where are arranger seems to switch from Minor to Major and back again by accident, these were also wrong in the original, but not as wrong. There is an issue where shorthand crotchets have been written (minims marked with a single line through the stem) in a few places (E in the Horns and Baritones for example) but in comparison to the orchestral score and also in perspective with what is going on at the same time around it, it appears that it should be quavers!? Surely less than a couple of months before the piece is going to make its maiden appearance at a prestigious contest, the basics should be correct and leave bands without any sense of confusion? Contact has been made with Pennine Music, but so far no firm solution has been achieved. It does though seem that Neville Buxton (a pseudonym?) doesn't really know what he wants. Obviously the opinions in this thread are my own and not those of my band, but I do know that the hour we spent at rehearsal last night trying to iron out the problems were very frustrating for all involved. Any thoughts/comments?
