The calling used for this composition is interesting in that it is a "No Course Revisited" or NCR calling i.e. there are no nested blocks of calls in the composition, so once you have had a coursing order, you never return to it. As there are 12 calls in each part of a cyclic 5-part, it means that all 60 tenors-together in-course coursing orders are present in a normal peal length.

Tenors together compositions of the Standard Eight have to have three or more consecutive leads of Bristol at least twice to obtain all the work for every bell, as Bristol can never follow a plain lead of a seconds place method. This composition overcomes this obstacle by briefly parting the tenors for five leads using F/I, I/V and V/F. This enables the composition to include a change of method every lead.

First rung on handbells at Calcot on 31 August 1988, conducted by Bernard F L Groves.
First rung on towerbells at Meldreth on 16 September 1988, conducted by John P Loveless.

Note: In A Collection of Compositions in Popular Major Methods published by Central Council Publications in 2001, the F/I on the third line is incorrectly marked as I/V.
