Excellent, thanks Rob! I look forward to seeing a peal of it being rung. 
I'd be interested to know how it compares, in the tower, to the cyclic 
multi-part genre. Run counts have been pushed much higher in the latter, 
but does the stability of tenors-together and the comparative 
predominance of back-bell rollups still have some appeal?

You have permission to shoot me if I ever stoop so low. :-)
