Peal compositions by David G Hull
Welcome to my re-designed peal compositions website. I am still working to iron out one or two technical problems, but the compositions available represent the vast majority of my rung collection. I have also started including some un-rung compositions and these will be added to over time; I will also increase the search facilities. Please let me have any comments you have.
Since 2002 the focus of my attention has switched from Royal and above to the generation of compositions and methods on 8; the aim in most cases has been to maximise runs at the front and back, concentrating in the first instance on 5678s and 8765s. The methods are broadly in two categories - those with B falseness and those with D falseness. There have been several series - the York Bars, the York Colleges and the York Diocese Cistercian Abbeys - and all are worth ringing (but then I would say that).
I have attempted to formalise the presentation of musical characteristics of each composition, using the format generated from John Goldthorpe's SuperProve peal proving program. This hopefully gives, at a glance, an indication of the various quantifiable musical features; work on the Maximus compositions is still to be completed.
I'm always happy to undertake commissions for methods and compositions - if you have a particular requirement, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please ensure that you prove for yourself any composition that appears on this site which you intend to call - I hope that the data is 100% accurate but typographical errors can easily creep in - please let me know if you find any!
