An alternative start, which gives more 5678s, 8765s, 5678s off front and little bell runs, is to have rounds as the 25346 course end (also changing one optional lead from C to S gives more crus and a slightly better method balance).

The half dozen or so changes to the original (Black Book, p12) increase the number of crus from 48 (particularly adding 65s & 46s), introduce c.o.m. at plain leads of Bristol and give a slightly better method balance.

Rung at Bristol Cathedral, 12 January 2008

Composition Note. Neil Aspland's excellent 6 part actually contains all 144 crus in 4416 changes but has no 8765s at the back or 5678s or 6578s off the front. This version retains the basic six part, with just the 2 underlined leads changed, then has additions to obtain more [5678] music both at the front and at the back.
