    I think it's a bit of a stretch to describe "Torchbearer" as SA music. It might be more accurately subtitled "Variations on an Original Theme by Eric Ball". The thematic material upon which Peter...

    I understand what you're saying, however I don't even think having new music guards against that with some adjudicators. I've seen too many written comments where the sub-text clearly reads "I...

    For what it's worth, William Rimmer died in 1936, so technically his music became Public Domain (ie. out of copyright) in 2006. However a complication arises because it's possible the edition is...

    When will the Eb sop and bass trumpets be available?
