Here is tones of mistakes written all over the parts in comedy, it is best just to sit down at a sectional with the score and pick them out, and line your part up with the score.

jimmythesaint said:Has anyone found problems in any of the parts? We're findingthat not all of the individual parts correspond with the score and with other parts around the band?
Is anyone else having problems with this and is there a known errata sheet?
Look forward to your responses.

Ian Bartram said:There are lots of discrepancies between the score and the parts.
(i) The adjudicator has the score in the box.
(ii) Make sure the parts agree with the score.
(iii) Adjudicator happy (???!!!)
stevetrom said:we did consider playing a totally different piece and saying that it was Comedy but we had corrected all the errors in the parts -It might make someone laugh and that is surely the whole idea of a Comedy
Laserbeam bass said:All well and good, but there appears to be two different scores doing the rounds. One of my fellow BBb bass players advised me of an errata in his part and score, that is not the same in my part and score. I know that one dynamic marking in the BBb bass part will not make the greatest difference to any score, but if the adjudicator has the other version how many other discrepancies are there likely to be over a 12 minute piece:ranting2:
AndyCat said:I brought this up with a member of the Test Piece Selection panel 2 weeks ago, so the problem has been raised with them.
Slightly difficult one though, as John Ireland is unavailable at present!
Ian Bartram said: Yes, John Ireland is no longer with us - but his original hand-written score should be: somewhere in the bowels of R.Smith & Co.
 It's not a huge job with a little 12 minute piece to proof-read the published score and parts against the original score (if it's available) and issue errata. In our band contest scene this would be best done by one competent person (on behalf of all bands). Just make sure a musician does it.
