    Ignore the one about bar 54 in the slow movement. The dynamics are right, it's just all about context - which we didn't really find on the first few run-throughs.

    National Finals Test-pieces - errata

    Hi all.

    Is anyone aware of Errata sheets for any of the national finals test pieces?

    Nope. Firstly because it's not really a hymn, (though why it should have to be a 'hymn' i don't know, surely any slow melody is OK) and secondly if you look in fourth place, you'll see a band with 99...

    Forgive me for pointing out the obvious, but I'm fairly sure praise does have a DC at the very least - though without a score I can't recall if it's a DC al fine or a DC al coda.

    I feel sorry for messers Cosh and Cutt at that.... And for whoever draws number 28. We drew 23 in my last year at co-op and that was bad enough.
