Harmony Music, for those who may not be familiar:
Heard 4th section is likely to be another oldie next year......anyone got any other inside info on this, or any other the other lower section pieces yet
Any news on the date when pieces are released?

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

A man once accused of being able to write a melody...
A wise man once said, "Pointing out a fallacy in someone's argument is not the same as pedantically and persistently pushing it down someone's throat whilst completely ignoring other points that are made."
Any more crack on possible pieces?
Rumour has it 4th section is likely to be another oldie....just as long as its not Indian Summer!
Solo Euph - Jayess Newbiggin Band
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!!!

Cheers, all the best.
all views are my own and not a reflection of any band/ensemble that I am a member of.
Third section must be due an older piece after 2 successive fairly new pieces? Another new one would be good though.
Solo Cornet - Eccles Borough Band
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.
