Whit Friday: June 1st 2007

The provisional exam timetable is now out. Who can make it?

I have an afternoon exam on the 1st and a morning exam on the 2nd (which I can’t afford to drop) so I reckon that pretty much rules me out unless they change the dates on the real timetable :-( first missed Whit Friday in 7 years!

Whit Friday video

Ladies, Gentlemen and Wee-man,

Yes it’s me again… only a quick one this time, because it’s way past my bedtime here and I’m flying tomorrow. I’ve just uploaded the video of us performing at Lydgate on Whit Friday to YouTube. According to the marks it wasn’t one of our better ones, but it doesn’t sound that awful apart from the beginning of the trio (listen out at about 1min50sec… you’ll see what I mean.)

Make of it what you will.

Whit Friday Adjudications

Here are some of the adjudicators comments, as far as I can tell through the illegible scrawl that is adjudicators' handwriting:

Dobcross:–
Loose to open in ensemble semiquavers! Solo cornet also loose on semiquavers! Tuning good in lower band. Cornets as a section not well in tune! Dynamics very good. Sop plays well. 2nd time. Why rush the simple quavers of bar 4! Basic control! Good to close – but again, rush on the simple parts
(all exclamation marks are as Mr Kevin Wadsworth wrote it)

Grotton:–
Good opening with good sounds, nice cornet, misses in nervous sections and playing at times is untidy. Dynamics are rather safe, bass solo good sounds, but short note values, upper band well done.
Trio, nice euphs, some neat playing from cornets, final section not always secure, missed notes and intonation suffers in upper band. DC, better generally this time, but (squiggle) misses in (p) section (ff) section tempo is pushy, bass solo gets untidy but a precise finale. Thank you

Lees:–
Tuning worries and ensemble not as tight as it could be. Soloist b i'm afraid – you sound happiest at H. Bass solo rushing? Nice middle band tune at trio and background work is good. Soprano enjoys last strain – listen to the rest of the band" it all sounds a touch panic stricken – more time is needed to play with a bit more consideration! Thank you!

Uppermill:–
A rather nervous start. A pity about the glitches that were heard. Tempo tended to fluctuate. Basses could be stronger in trio– nice euphonium here. Balance could be better especially before DC. A sensible choice of march for this band.
(That was from Uncle Goff btw)

Lydgate went with a more standardised system and we got marked :–
Performance – Fair
Sections: Cornets – attention required
Horns – fair
Bari/Euph – fair
Troms – fair
Basses – fair
Use of dynamics/musicianship – fair/attention required
Intonation – fair/attention required
Start was together but intonation was not good. As you progress the cornets sound laboured in semiquaver sections. Bass solo passage quite good.

I'll put them up on the board in the MC foyer, and also post any more up here.

Grotton 25/48
Lydgate 51/57
Uppermill 28/57

Delph 40/75

Don't have the time at the moment to do analysis I'm afraid. If someone else wants to, you can find the previous years stats at http://www.davidsait.co.uk/wf2005.htm

N.B. Leeds appeared to only play in 3 contests. Like us, they were at Delph. They came 54th.

If you have photographs from the day, please leave a comment telling us where they are. I know both Bruce and Ben have them on their Facebook profiles.

Delph CD Order

Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view

I received an email a while ago saying that I may be able to buy Delph Whit Friday CDs direct from Delph at the bargainous price of £10 + p&p. This compares to about £13 + p&p from World of Brass or 4BR. Is anyone interested in buying a CD? We could put a band order in and haggle the price. I've already bought the CD and it is pretty good, with the (amazing) Dyke playing my favourite march, Knight Templar, and other bands…

Whit Friday Marches 2005

Writing about web page http://www.worldofbrass.com/acatalog/24616.html

Today the CD featuring highlights from the village of Delph from this years Whit Friday March Contests has been released by World of Brass.

The CD features such world-famous bands as Black Dyke, Besses, Fodens and YBS, and also, yes, The University of Warwick Brass Band!

Recorded on Friday 20th May 2005, live outside the Delph Band Club, at about 11pm, the performance was at the last of the 5 villages we'd visited that evening. Our chosen contest march for the day was 'The Spirit of Victory' by Andrea Crossley, and the 25 players inside the contest ring gave an excellent performance, chosen by the contest organisers to feature on this CD.
