    No, we were just hoping it was something else. The last time the Championship section had anything that was even remotely forward-looking was in 2003. Fed up with playing pastiche music.

    If that is indeed correct, I think I'll need some sort of divine inspiration to get me through Jan-Mar.

    I think you hit the nail very firmly on the head with your last comment, Simon. We're all singing from roughly the same (unphotocopied) hymn sheet. The retailers do need to show some flexability and...

    Just ditched Windows 8 completely. I am a free man!
    Linux Mint 17 from now on, but I've got to get my head round Musescore very quickly.

    Please no. Pass the vodka. If I wanted to play ******* Sally Army music, I would have joined.

    I personally would love it to be true, but there will be an uproar about mutes. Looking at the score, horns, baritones and euphs all need cup mutes and euphs need bucket mutes as well. I can see...

    Very true. In our 'contest oriented' bubble, it's so easy to forget the biggest section of them all - the '5th' section of bands who choose not to compete but are doing all the parks/garden...

    Resurgam. Although, to be fair, I think it was written as a contest piece first, then adopted by the SA. Probably a few more knocking around. The SA 150 thing worries me, as we've just had St Magnus...

    Even us ;)

    Don't want any more pastiche pieces. At least Revelation and Spiriti are honest and sincere pieces of music. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind Torchbearer, but let's try and move...

    I tend to frequent the 4BR facebook group a little more often. As it's unmoderated, there are some pretty horrible things said, but I simply block anyone not being pleasant. They can't see what I've...

    No, it's definitely in treble. One or two top C#'s and a D. Mars is the most exposed, but relatively easy to play, Jupiter has a bit of double-tonguing arpeggios to deal with. The last page of Uranus...

    Of course. First rule of band contests, it's only a duff result when you lose :-?

    Mind you, I bet knitting contests, bake-offs, banjo competitions, dog shows, etc. etc. etc. are the same.
