Perhaps I am missing your point Don, but I don't see why there has to be
an even number of changes of hunt bell in each part. In fact, if no
other types of single are being used, then an 8 part composition must
have an odd number of singles in each part to ensure that one of the
out-of-course part ends is produced at the end of the first part. ie
23456781, 45678123, 67812345 or 81234567 for a cyclic 8 part.
