    The situation is that the contract was to supply a designated contact with a download of the file. Such download services offer a limited number of downloads before they expire. If the original contact has forwarded the link and you've 'missed out' I'd suggest having a chat with them as IMO the contract has been fulfilled.

    Blimey, thank you. :biggrin:
    We'll see next week, but at the moment we're just hoping we don't just go straight back down! We've put in a heck of a lot of hard work so far, very aware of the difference in difficulty of the test piece from last year.

    Thought everyone played well, but was very impressed with the sound the two top bands made, Hebden Bridge gave a really full and balanced sounding performance of Moorside Sweet, and Rothwell...well, just wow. What a sound thier troms/basses have when they're giving it some clog. Awesome.

    Thank you! I'm blushing.

    I enjoyed the night again. . well organised and friendly event.

    We were a little dissapointed in our playing, but we received tons of positive remarks from all around. I guess that's maybe the standards we set ourselves.

    I agree with Crawf. Hebdon created that smooth flowing style in the 2nd mov. and they were very well lead by a cracking young man on solo cornet.

    Rothwell showed all the signs of a band who are gonna defend their title in fine style. Very convincing stuff through 80%+ of the piece, i'm sure they'll nail it this Sunday!

    Very much enjoyed all the performances, Emley were good and tight - heard them not so long ago so not too surprised at their standard, they are certainly building on the strong foundations they have and are strong contenders in my view. Absolutely love Labour and Love, one of the first test pieces I played, as good a test today as it was when it was written and very under rated in it's difficulty. Very exposed for a lot of the soloists and I thought Lofthouse did very well with the piece.

    Hebden's rendition of A Moorside Suite didn't disappoint either, with a week to go, it was a performance they can certainly build on. Had to leave before Rothwell got to play so can't comment on them, overall a very enlightening and enjoyable evening, well done to the organisers!
