Cooktown Orchid - January's Method of the Month

1 – 31 January 2019

2019’s Ringing World Diary launches ’Method of the Month’, introducing special monthly major methods chosen by Simon Linford. They have all been featured in Project Pickled Egg, and we recommend them to any 8-bell bands looking for good and musical methods with a variety of structure.

January’s method is Cooktown Orchid Delight Major. Link your January performances to this event! (Once you’ve submitted a performance to BellBoard, go to your performance, click on the pencil icon at the top and click ‘Link to event’.) Linked performances won’t be held for printing together, but you can submit them for printing individually in the usual way (don’t forget to donate!).

You can find a line for Cooktown Orchid on p.77 of your diary, or at https://complib.org/method/24457.

Simon Linford’s Ringing World article introducing Cooktown Orchid as part of Project Pickled Egg was in the 8th June 2018 issue (5589). An article for Method of the Month, with compositions of Cooktown Orchid from practice night touches to peals, was in the Christmas Double issue (5617/8).
