Comments on the competition
Some of the simpler 'note meant' clues were quite good and got points from me, but not 39 which suffers from a double fault: 'reparation' doing double duty as defintion and anagram indicator and at the same time posing as an unsound nounal anagram indicator. Awful — but hey this is a democratic vote and it would not surprise me if judges who know no better gave it points!
