Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bellringing
The tune "Bridge over the river Ash" is set to the cadence structure half way through the ringing method "Bristol Maxiumus."
As Michael Caine would say, not a lot of people know that.
I thought it coincidence till I checked it out. It does seem so.
Despite Mrs Musket being a keen bell ringer, I have very few songs that mention change ringing. The only song I regularly sing with any reference is MacColl's Sweet Thames Flow Softly. So this thread is very useful and interesting.
