Many congratulations to Mark Eccleston and the Birmingham band on ringing Eddie Martin's peal of "2s, 4s, 6s, 8s" spliced triples ( http://bb.ringingworld.co.uk/view.php?id=471793). I've copied the composition below (also at http://bb.ringingworld.co.uk/comp.php?id=1958087). Very impressive.

Given it's a 10 part composition, I imagine it was a bit of a breeze for Mark to learn and call... :-)

I've a few questions - some specific about the performance that hopefully Mark or one of the band can answer, and some more general:

1) Why describe/submit the peal as "Spliced Triples (3m)...1920 each Carter, Stedman; 1200 Titanic"? This doesn't appear the most natural description to me. The building blocks are not 12-change sections of Carter etc, but instead (6) discrete blocks of 2, 4, 6 and 8 changes (as shown in the composition, and from the " 2 4 6 8" description I infer this is how it was called and rung). The delightful 4-change block C4 ( deserves its own name too.

2) Did Eddie develop the idea further and produce any related compositions that the band have within their sights?

3) Can someone put together an analogous peal of spliced triples constructed with just 4 component blocks?

4) Can someone put together an analogous 120 of doubles, eg with 2, 4, 6 change blocks?
