    Images of the Millennium - Howard Snell

    Interesting, I'll wait for a full announcement from somewhere like 4BR myself (not that I'm doubting the SBBA's credibility ) but if they're right, I'm really looking forward to "Journey to Centre of the Earth".

    Strange, Aren't these announcements a bit early?

    I've spoken to two of the listed publishers this morning who, after checking the SBBA website themselves to make sure I wasn't trying to pull a swift one, confirmed their respective pieces and that they had been informed recently. I suppose, therefore, that we can trust the entire list. (He says calling his supplier to order Journey to the Centre of the Earth).

    We at tMP have it on good authority that the pieces given are indeed those selected, the information having been received by John Martin via email as an official press release dated 1st August, and for immediate inclusion on the website.

    The announcement is certainly earlier than last year, when the news broke on 10th September, the weekend of the Lower Sections National Finals.

    1st sections bands are in for a treat.. this piece is a good one, especially for Goff fans! Played the piece in uni this year and it's really cool, some great moments....

    Good lineup of pieces.... can't wait to hear bands playing these

    I believe that "Images of the Millennium" was originally intended for two bands: has this been re-arranged specially for the contest?

    Images of the Millenium was written for two bands, and I seem to remember there being narration involved. However I think the A band parts work as a stand alone piece. Quite testing for 2nd section I would think.

    There was indeed narration involved - And I seem to remember rifle shots too !!!

    I assume there has been some re-scoring to turn it into a 1-band test piece

    Entertainments is going to be a cracker as well especially on the back of Tam O'Shanter this year. third section bands should really enjoy working on this one.

    3rd Section
    Entertainments - Gilbert Vinter
    If this is correct, once again the 3rd section get stuck with a piece that very few bands will be able to make a good performance of. When Oh when will they learn.........................

    Journey to the Centre of the Earth - Peter Graham

    That should certainly sort the wheat from the chaff as they say. Just what was needed after Rienzi.
