Yes this is rather well trodden ground. DFM has extensively explored
Cambridge, and as well as all the strictly tenors-together compositions, I
found all the exact 6-parts of Cambridge S Major with tenors together course
ends by exhaustive search in the mid 1990s. There are a couple on my site
(and some on Don's):-


I don't think I have seen something exactly like Tom's five part before,
though. It is good to see some more thought given to compositions for
advancing handbell bands, too.
