These compositions were inspired by Thurstans Masterpiece, also known as his 4-part.  Although called
a 4-part it is really a 20-part.  Each part runs five times cyclically rotating the front five bells.
The quarters these produce when started from different course-ends are joined by extras and omits
into two halves which are then further joined by 2 singles.

If you look closely at the following 20-part compositions you will see that they are made up of two blocks
(A and B). The B block peforms the same function as the Thurstans block, cyclically rotates the front 5 bells.
The A block joins two quarters, and is only slightly different to the B block.  The two half peals are
then joined by singles (in No1 two extra calls, in No2, two singles are omitted).  The singles take you
directly to another six in the other half peal (see blocks S & T in peal No1, and X and Y in No2 - sorry for
inconsistencies in naming conventions!).

No2 has the benefit of having no more than 3 consecutive calls.
