Last night I rang a handbell peal of Yorkshire Royal - http://www.campanophile.co.uk/view.aspx?92791

I had thought 14 straight courses of tenors-together b-group surprise royal (especially 2-parts) would be pretty much exhausted, but the new Pipe composition we rang was both simple and elegant, and felt novel.

5040 Yorkshire Royal (DJP)
M	W	H	23456
	-	2	24536
	2	3	43526
-		X	65432

Has anything very similar to this been rung before?

Most existing 2-parts seem to have 24365 as the half-way course-end.  65432 is arguably the way forward.
