In Peter Hadcocks book, he suggest's propping open the Db-Gb key with the
butt end of a old reed between rehearsal #'s 155 & 156.
Takes some getting used to at first and you have to remember to pull it out
and drop it on the floor before starting 156.
He also show's it as eighth's @-----.He was not as kind as you !

The revised part's arrived the other day.
Will advise when we have played them.
BTW, your new Sibelius printing is first class.
