Contains the mega tittums course of Superlative Surprise.
6 of each type of 4-bell run (apart from those including the treble) at the front.
10 of each type of 4-bell run (apart from those including the treble) at the back.

Superlative Surprise may be replaced with its half-lead varient, Southgate Surprise, resulting in a contiguous-place-free composition. This would make the first part end 5678234, but the quarter peal contains all the same rows.

The first and last lead of Double Norwich Court Bob in each part may be replaced with Victoria Little Bob (&x4x3x6+1) for a 1288 with no reduction in the number of runs or wrap-arounds.

The “course head” column lists the backstroke row immediately before the next change of treble takes effect. Each row in that column which is bracketed is another backstroke row in between the next change of treble and the one preceding it (i.e. the last in the previous “course”), meaning the coursing order is still the same. The bracketed “course heads” are deemed to be more useful signposts.

The composition notes the order in which bells become the treble. The handstroke after each noted bell leads, the new lead of Grandsire Cinques begins. A number (n) in the column “Change of treble” raised to a power (x) indicates that the bell numbered n will be the treble for x leads, e.g. 25 means that for the next 5 consecutive occasions on which the 2nd bell leads 3rds place will be made. This is the conventional notation for Variable Treble Grandsire Triples masterminded by Alan S Burbidge.

The first 3 “courses” introduce some Queens-type music including Kings. The remaining “courses” follow a very obvious cyclic structure.

Note that the quarter peal begins with plain hunting until the 8th bell leads after which 3rds is made, i.e. the 1 is not the treble to begin with.

Note that “variable treble” compositions like this one are acceptable according to the Central Council rules on peal ringing as outlined in the CC Decisions (E) A. 2. “…A call may be effected in one of the following ways: …(b) by omitting consecutive changes, altering the length of a lead.”
