Bring it on, baby!
Tonight was the Society of Cambridge Youths AGM. After being inspired by
recent emails on here, David Pipe spent his time productively, thinking
noble thoughts about big tittums. He came up with the following supremely
3984 Bristol Maximus
O I 234567890ET
The figures refer to the type of bob. O is an 'out' for the tenor, I is an
'in' for the 2nd. Ideal for handbells - all pairs are either in their home
position or coursing.
It's gorgeous, and so simple in the way it works. A 10ths place bob 'out'
turns the coursing order from the plain course to the tittums style 432.
This effect is repeated with appropriate bobs every course until
mega-tittums is obtained. The effect is then reversed with the inverse bobs
in the second half. The composition can be padded out at will. Neat or
what? Also a beautiful example of where ahving lots of different types of
call can be the most elegant solution.
I'm almost tempted to organise an attempt of this...
