Another example I should have given, dear to Eddie's heart. I am sure
that if the Council in it's wisdom allowed the historical method New
Grandsire, there would be more peals of it rung than there are,
which these days is none at all. Probably not the sort of thing Philip
Earis longs for, and not really innovative, as it is of some
antiquity. But a way of adding interesting variety to the diets of
many non-superstar bands, and so a loss to our community brought on by
our slavish adherence to the Council's Decisions.
