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!
