    And Triumphant Rhapsody would end very inconclusively, at the cornet cadenza...

    1,000's of Liverpool and Celtic fans would have to pick a new anthem.

    ....with lots of triplets, thus increasing the inkload-per-page-of-sheet-music factor (IPPSM factor - was an old htv quiz show) and eventually causing the corruption of mankind to extreme-capitalism...

    No just use the confusing dotted-quaver semi quaver equals triplets notation which is used at the top of every Bernarts publication. ;)

    Ah!

    Whilst I seem to recall a brass band arrangement of "You'll never walk alone" in 12/8 time, having recently endured a week playing in the Orchestra pit for a production of "Carousel", I can assure you that the original version is in 4/4 time!

    Regards,

    G.

    Indeed there is a 12/8 version, and very cheesy it is too (and dirgey if too slow). It's arpeggios-r-us in the accompaniment, bit like a one-finger keyboard. Best to get Howard Snell's version (in 4/4 as it should be), harder but much better playing and listening!

    as cheese goes, not bad though. I quite like it ;)
