The stedman would be easier if you could avoid the 56 roll up's in the bristol at the c/e 32456. It rules out 4 sixes (half the available) of 567890e's

Subject: [r-t] Compositional help requested

I've been messing around with a compositional idea (which may be attempted
at the end of this month) for a couple of hours this evening, but I've got a
bit bored and so am seeking help.  Any offers gratefully received.

Slink (&56.123T,1T) is a short and very simple maximus link method, which
can be used to get you into cyclic courses very quickly.  An example is the
following very musical simple 11-part quarter composition:

1144 Spliced Maximus (2m)
2*Slink   14523ET90786
2*Bristol 167890ET2345

Pad out if you feel the need.

Right, now for various reasons I'm trying to produce a simple peal
composition that contains self-contained blocks of Bristol Max, Cambridge
Max and Stedman Cinques in (very roughly) similar length blocks.  For my
Bristol section, I'd like to start with the cyclic composition above.
Following this, for the rest of the peal I want 'conventional' music and
simple callings (tenors together for the surprise and a
'tittums'/handstrokes combo for the Stedman).

I've got the maximus section of the composition to more or less how I want
it. Here's where I've got to:

Spliced Cinques / Maximus

2*Slink                14523ET90786 |
2*Bristol              167890ET2345 | A
9A                     190ET2345678
            M   W   H
SSBB.BBB.       -   -  1452367890ET
(Bristol)       -   s  132456
(Cambridge) s   s   s  154263
            -       -  132465
            -   -      164523
(Stedman)   x          13426578E90T
            y          ????658709ET
                ?????  2143658709ET


There are 3544 rows up to the end of the Cambridge section.  Can some of you
Stedman fans please help me out and come up with a suitable simple block of
calls (at 7 and 18, or whatever is easiest) to replace the question marks in
the Stedman section?  Preferably maximising 567890ETs if possible.

There may be a prize for the best solution!
