The World Rejoicing Release    

Morthanveld Publishing Ltd has announced that the performing material (score and parts) for the British Open Championship set test-piece, Edward Gregson’s 'The World Rejoicing — Symphonic Variations on a Lutheran Chorale', will be available to all participating bands from 1st May.

The publisher stated: "In view of the recent and continuing positive news in the UK regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, and the government's roadmap for releasing restrictions on public gatherings, we are increasingly hopeful that the British Open in September and the National Brass Band Championships in The Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and Norway will take place as planned later this year and early next year.

"If any of the five events are cancelled, postponed or change their set test-piece for this cycle, or if a band is either unable to enter or forced to withdraw for any reason, we regret that no refunds can be issued. Bands are asked to bear this in mind when ordering."

The performing material can be ordered from:
