    Whilst queueing for a bag of chips in Swansea last night I overheard a well-respected member of the South Wales brass band fraternity confiding to a rather distinguished-looking gentleman wearing a beautiful tweed suit and brown brogues that he had been assured on good authority by someone who's opinion he values highly that there was a strong possibility that the First Section test-piece for the National Finals at Harrogate this year is to be Journey Into Freedom.

    There is a sweepstake going to see how long the rumour takes to get onto the mouthpiece. I had 23 hours, must be pretty close, eh?

    I'd put my money on Triumphant Rhapsody

    Talk about history repeating itself. TMP members may recall that it was the finals first section test piece in 1993. Having said that, it is one of my all time favourites so I won't complain if the rumour comes true.:)

    It would be fantastic if it was chosen....but then this early in the year there will be so uch speculation then you could really believe anyone. I'll go for something Vinter related.......Variations on a Ninth etc or Triumphant Raspberry

    I think it's a great piece, although Frank Wright's arrangement is too heavily scored (... stamina killer) and Chris Jenkin's does have it's moments!

    Would love it to be Journey into Freedom, it's my all time favourite testpiece.

    Mind you, all a bit immaterial if we don't qualify!

    Wouldn't it be a bit more interesting if one of John McCabe's works was chosen? (... after all, this is his 70th year).

    Do you know, that's exactly what the distinguished-looking gentleman said!!
    Do you own a tweed suit and brown brogues?:)

    I don't come from South Wales though ;)

    Likely candidates from McCabe? Images, Salamander or perhaps Northern Lights?
