Hmm, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks it's strange! And it's
nothing recent either---it's been a problem since I first put the
score together, which seems to be four years ago.

I've uploaded a score with annotate-spacing

I've tried that before, but I couldn't really make head or tail of
it. The numbers tell me what I can already see, but they don't give me
many clues as to why they're changing.

Also, there are dynamic marks on page three---the cornets and basses
have mf markings toward the end of the system.

Thanks for your help,
