Pageantry – Advice to Conductors and Adjudicators

Pageantry – Advice to Conductors and Adjudicators

Pageantry Picture

The following statement has been issued by the Executive Committee of the Association of Brass Band Adjudicators regarding the Championship Regionals Test Piece “Pageantry” (Herbert Howells).

 

As there has been a certain ambiguity about the 3/4 bar after figure 13 (bar 5 of figure 13) in the final movement (“Jousts”), adjudicators are advised that either version of this bar is acceptable and should not be penalised.  Therefore conductors may negotiate this bar as crotchet = crotchet or as in the score,  minim = dotted minim.

 

We hope this clarifies any misunderstanding.
