Find a composition

The table on this page shows the applicability of the general purpose compositions listed under individual methods. The compositions are ordered by falseness-group order, for example a composition for BDE will come before one for BDK which will precede one for DK. Where a composition is constructed completely from whole courses, it can be transposed to be suitable for any regular lead order. In addition, compositions for any regular 2nds place lead order will also produce an equivalent composition for the complementary 8ths place lead order when reversed and using the appropriate calls (4ths-place calls become 6ths-place ones in the complementary lead order and vice versa). The complementary pairs are a and m, b and l, c and k, d and j, e and h, and f and g. Note this feature is particularly useful for leads orders d and j as a composition for the 2nds place version of a method will give a composition with similar features for the 8ths place version of the same method (and vice versa). The `Others' column shows whether a composition can be transposed for other lead-end orders. Compositions with 1256 singles in 2nds place methods will use 1458 singles when transposed for an 8ths place method (and vice versa).

To use the table, find ALL the falseness groups of the method you want a composition for. It is important that the out-of-course only and the split tenors only groups are fully considered as many of the compositions contain singles and split tenors sections (A T in the tenors column indicates a composition with the tenors together throughout, S indicates the composition contains some split tenors work). Then look down the table to identify any composition which includes all those groups within the list of groups it is true to. Then check that the lead order is suitable and transpose the composition if necessary (if in any doubt how to do this ask an expert!). Finally prove what you intend to ring with a peal proving program to make sure it is indeed true to the method you want to ring it to.

General purpose compositions can be useful for a range of methods but often, if a method-specific composition is available, it may be better as it should have been tailored to the specific features of the method.

Note 1: As given for –58– starts, for other methods start with rounds as 32456 course end
Note 2: As given for –56– starts, for other methods start with rounds as 23465 course end
Note 3: Composition with 4ths place calls in 8ths place method; on transposition would give 6ths place calls in a 2nds place method
Note 4: Composition with 1456 singles, these remain as 1456 singles when transposed for 8ths place methods
Note 5: As given for –36– starts, for methods starting 36-, begin at snap in 24635 course
Note 6: As given for 38– starts, for other methods start with rounds as 32456 course end
Note 7: As given for –36– starts, for other methods start with rounds as 23465 course end
Note 8: Composition with half lead singles, places to be made for the single will depend on the method
Note 9: 5040 for methods with 24 changes a lead (e.g. treble to 6ths TD), 6720 for those with 32 changes a lead
Note 10: As given for –38– starts, for other methods start with rounds as 32456 course end
Note 11: Composition with two 123678 calls, these become as 123478 calls when transposed for 2nds place methods
Note 12: For methods with 28 changes a lead
Note 13: As given for 38– starts, for other methods start with rounds as 23546 course end
Note 14: Finishes at snap so only suitable for 2nds place methods (lead ends b,c,f) with –38– starts
Note 15: As given for snap start in methods starting -58, also suitable when transposed for -36 starts
Note 16: As given for snap start in methods starting -58
