Subject: RE: bellringing
The album is "A ringing tour, Bells of the Cotswolds"
the "cuts" are:
Burford, Oxon, 8 bells
Bledington, Glos, 6 bells
Stoe-on-the-Wold, Glos. 8 bells
Morton-ini-marsh, Glos. 8 bells
Bourton-on-the-hill, Glos, 6 bells
Chipping Campden, Glos, 8 bells
Ebrington, Glos, 6 bells
Ilmington, Warks, 6 bells
(What does it all mean??!!)
The liner notes say that ringing means
the bell goes all the way around, full-circle.
And that other mode of sounding are called
chiming. It also says that the bell starts
and stops in the upside-down position.
Can this be? hard to imagine how it all works..
sounds good though.
the album goes on to note that with the advent of the
motor car, a "band" of bell ringers can sample or
practice on 6-8 bell towers in a single day!
