Hi Rob,
GIGUE & CONGREGATIONAL are right.
20d is OUTWENT obs.surpassed.
50d is STEIN a large German drinking vessel,Gertrude Stein was a US writer.
30a I am not sure you have put the right letters in. EL-E-MEN-TAL of fire,say.
I hope this is of assistance.
Regards,
Jerry

Rob,
Having looked again at your 30a If you have entered MIND as the last word of 8d,the correct word is TUNE.

Hi Jerry. Yes, I had put 'mind' but when you gave the answer of 'elemental' I realised that 'tune' was the more apt alternative.
Thanks again.
Rob
