    Thanks Dave. I had never heard that about 8va below staff vs above.

    Ohh, Revelation is one of my absolute favorite brass band pieces.

    It’s definitely an octave lower. My understanding of the dotted line is under the stave to indicate down and above to reverse that. The second euphonium part has a lot of straight metal muted pedals, and the 1st euph is largely open. One of my favourite Wilby pieces, it’s properly monumental, as you’d expect with a title like that!

    If memory serves I believe the piece starts with a pianissimo pedal Ab (treble) for BBb bass. There are also pedals for the cornets.
