    Is there any passages in testpieces that you like, could merit their own piece written somehow, if it was possible to write one?!

    For instance, just now I really like the Sop solo in Northern Lights, its only for about a minute, but I think its great and think it would be lovely if was written as a solo piece somehow, if you know what I mean!!!

    Any more?

    A Time for Peace has already been reworked by the composer as a stand alone tenor horn solo.

    There was a rumour the year that we played this that Nativity was going to be released as a standalone piece, although it may have been being done in a different key...did it happen?

    It's on the new Black Dyke Christmas Carol cd (according to the 4BR track listing and review).

    Goff Richard's test piece Hollywood is so catchy and accessible that the whole of it should be shortened and put out as a concert piece.

    Johan Evenepoel's "Ginnungagap" (written for BB Buizingen at the Belgian Nationals a couple of years ago and used as the set piece for the Dutch Nationals two years ago) contains a very beautiful slow section, which is published on its own under the name "Melting the Ice"
