Yes, I, or perhaps more accurately, my software, believes that that is
correct: the only group it is universally true to is 'a'.

So, I suppose, you could ring it to the unnamed method that is eighth
place Derwent. Though, of course, it would be a silly choice for that
method as you can get a lot more music out of it than with a
composition true to Quixhill.
