Composers: please check your entries for correctness. I did a very cursory check, but the best way to ensure your entry is correct is to check it yourself. Please let me know any problems and I will fix. Best wishes to all of you in the competition!!
Thank you Gavin for all your hard work in putting this together.
Thanks Chris! This is going to be a particularly fun contest! We have so many entries from every style of music imaginable, there's something in this contest for everyone's taste!
Too bad. I guess you'll have to quit your Job, this contest requires your complete attention.

I created a tally sheet with all the entry information so I could add my comments easily as I listened. It contains the "Composer", title, Composer's comments, and shows if a score wasn't included (as a means to help remember the piece). This made it easy for me to come and go, and still remember the pieces and what I liked about them (without having to do it all in one go!). I'm happy to share it with anyone who might find it useful.
Janet, that seems like a very useful thing! Thanks!
