Why is it that there is always erattae after a new piece has been published for a major competition. Bands have to fork out what £70 - 80 for the complete set of parts plus conductors score, and there are these erattae?? Anyone ideas?
It's because errors in the setting of the score and parts are not picked up before the piece is published.....
And it's not 'always'. I haven't seen any errata posted for any of the lower section finals pieces.
(by the way, just to point out how easy it is to make a mistake, 'errata' is already a plural and therefore 'erattae' doesn't exist as a word !!)
