If you use existing music the a band who has recently performed  that work
has an advantage over one that hasn't . It places everyone onthe same
playing field.
The most important aspect is adding to the repetoire fro brass band. Just
think of the repetoire that would not have been written woithout these
commissions.
We would not have all this music  that is now established repetoire. No
Severn Suite. No moorside suite. etc
	Commissioning Philip Wilby etc is not just a matter of contesting,
it produces music that merits serious consideration by all music lovers.
