    I would hazard a guess at the same time as every year - at the National Finals in September.

    Are you sure? there's usually a reliable 'leak' well before then...

    There's a member of the music panel who in times past has been indiscreet in who he has talked to. The great thing is, he's indiscreet every year to the same person! Announce the pieces on January 1st I say.

    How about after the third week in March, just after the last area takes place

    I've heard the top section piece will be an Avant Garde piece, where the new arrangement of the National Anthem is played, then reinterpreted constantly until the adjudicator says uncle. (Members of the Royal Household will not be allowed to adjudicate.) Bands playing number one in the opening section on the day(s) of the Regioanl Qualifying Competitions can play number 37 in the hymn book instead.

    If Harmony Music is presumably the test piece (stupidly hard) lets get some class music for future areas! Music of the Spheres, St Magnus, Sketches from Nowhere!!!

    I'm sure it'll probably be something related to a specific area of the country!

    Third section must be due an older piece after 2 successive fairly new pieces? Another new one would be good though.

    Any comments that I make are my own views and not necessarily those of the band that I play for.

    It will interesting to see if the incompetent coffin-dodgers of The Music Panel feel the bar needs to be reset again after Resurgam and Cross Patonce.
