The percussion requirements for this work were amended in 2016 at the request of Kapitol Promotions Music Panel, which has selected the work as the test-piece for the 2016 Championship Section finals of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain, 8 October 2016.

With the co-operation of the composer, Percussion 3 material has been re-assigned, where possible, to Percussion 1 and Percussion 2, either as a re-write or cue. The reduced Percussion 3 part now becomes an option. 

Following further dialogue with the composer, the Music Selection Panel of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain have decided that bands may play the optional percussion part 3 if they wish. The adjudicators will be informed of this decision and that either performance option is equally allowable.
