I think I got generally the same (as far as I can remember), with the exception of the final Capercaillie question (I got metre and timbres) and possibly different for one of the true/false questions. I have no clue as to which is right, but its at least reassuring to have someone get almost identical answers
Oh and I did the Mozart for section B

I did Mozart as well. I found it quite straight forward except I didn't know the symbol for lifting pedal. I also put meter and melody but who really even knows what a real wauking song sounds like.

The bit you're missing in the Davis section is "Describe the melody of the saxophones", which I said it's based around a riff and is played a third apart by the two saxes.
