The really hard Rag Desh Quiz for Edexcel music GCSE

This is really hard!!! I challenge anyone to get 100% first time without any resources in front of them. However, most of this info is in the revision guide, so a question could come up on it in the exam, or you could put it in an essay question.:-)

Info obtained from the A5 Edexcel revision guide and the Edexcel Anthology of music.
