Competitors could chose their own piece to play, but the panel of judges had copies of the sheet music and they judged on accuracy and interpretation etc. The piece I played was not terribly difficult, as I was not that good! It was the Morley composition "Circus Parade". The piece has great dynamics and a great bass solo section, and with help of Tarrant Baileys Jnr's suggestions I guess I was just lucky to win the cup.
One thing is for sure, is that after a break from playing for 25 years I couldn't even win a saucer, let alone a cup nowadays!
Ey Up, somebody better order him a taxi!
