    Fantastic selection of music. Will probably revert to rubbish if we have to go back in 2008! Should provide a great day of playing and listening.

    Great choices across the board.

    It looks like a long day for people, especially the bands drawn towards the end of the Grand Shield. The Dyke recording of "The Night to Sing" runs to about 17 1/2 minutes. With setting up time, it's fair to assume that the Grand Shield won't even run at 3 bands an hour? Reading the 4BR coverage from the Open, it was 25 minutes a band.

    8pm for results anyone?

    As we appear to have a few discussions on these test-piece choices, I'll lock this one (as it's merely an official announcement) and direct you to the current thread on the 2007 Spring Festival Test Pieces, here: http://www.themouthpiece.com/vb/showthread.php?t=24797
