[r-t] New maximus compositions

A couple of sort-of new maximus compositions have been rung recently that deserve highlighting:

1) Bristol Max - David Pipe used a pretty efficient B/V calling to reverse the tenors for a period in an otherwise tenors-together composition. Perhaps this has been done before (?), but I'm not aware of any previous examples. The opening before obviously gives the T-E-0-9 tittums-y coursing music

Alistair Cherry has subsequently used the same concept to put together a simple 2-part:

5136 Bristol Surprise Maximus (No.63c)
M  9ths  W  H  23456
-        -  -  65432
     -   a     674523ET90
         b     67452390ET
     s   s     53462
-           -  24365
2 part, omitting a and b from one part.
a = B, V
b = F, B  

2) Spliced maximus using multiple befores. Jon Potter has recently rung a couple of new spliced atw tenors-together maximus compositions, with a whole course of most methods between (8ths place) calls at before to fit the methods in.  The blocks of five befores naturally give decent coursing orders, as exploited by MBD in his Bristol Major compositions (though Middleton may take some bragging rights here).
