Not sure which planet you are living on, Sam. Most composers today are
concentrating on runs, although I don't think that anyone has yet taken up the
term "cascades*" which I coined to provide an equivalent count to crus.

BTW - I still think that crus have their place, but only on 8 bells.


*cascades - a measure for little bell music, particularly useful on higher
numbers  i.e. the rows ending in xxxx1234, xxxx2345, xxxx3456, xxxx4321,
xxxx5432, and xxxx6543, giving a maximum of 144 on eight bells.
