Thanks Philip. It's actually meant to be a tri-partite plan, with 
tenors-together to open, some Tittums courses (getting value out of the 
coursing music of Pangaea), and then the cyclic section to finish. The 
calling is from a Chris Poole idea, originally used by him for Bristol, 
and later adapted to Precambrian (2nd's place Pangaea) for the 2013 
dinner day peal.

I've got a bit about the creation of the spliced composition on my 
(unfinished) new website:


This actually describes the composing process for last year's lost peal. 
Reduction of COM and a replacement conductor ensured the win this year!
