I contacted Bill Croft when Quaffed Delight Royal was rung on
handbells last year to let him know it was a valid extension of
Yelling, noting that it was not required to name it so because there
were other alternatives available. Bill decided to stick with Quaffed.
Llanbadarn Fawr on the other hand is not a candidate extension of
Yelling because the extension process is based upon repeating two
sections, either by expansion as in Quaffed where the 34x34 becomes
56x56 in the next section, or by statically repeating the 34x34 when
the treble is in 5-6 and in 7-8 as in the candidate extension of
Yelling below. In Llanbadarn Fawr the 34x34 has been shifted rather
than repeated.
