The General Board give notice that, on the recommendation of the Faculty Board or other authority concerned, the regulations for certain University examinations have been amended as follows:

Music Tripos, Part II


(Statutes and Ordinances, p. 365)

With effect from 1 October 2003

The supplementary regulations for the portfolio of free compositions (Paper 4) under Part II of the regulations for the Music Tripos have been amended to reduce the number of compositions required for the portfolio from four to three. The text has been amended so as to read:

Paper 4. Portfolio of free compositions

Candidates will be required to submit a portfolio of three compositions. One should be a setting of words, and one should include fugal elements and/or incorporate the techniques of ground bass and/or chaconne. One piece should be for orchestra (with or without voices) or ensemble of no fewer than ten players. One piece should be no shorter than eight minutes in duration. Normal staff notation will usually be expected, but electro-acoustic submissions are also acceptable. In addition, each candidate must submit a recording of at least one of the three pieces.
