Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bellringing
Subject: Bellringing
We sing a couple of Bellringing songs from down here in Cornwall - namely The ringers of Egloshayle and The Bellringing song - ('Twas in Ashwater town etc.) recently at the Sabine Baring Gould Festival a chap told us there was a song about Bellringers from Torrington, just over the border in Devon. Does anyone know of this song? Also Hawker (The Rev. Robert Stephen, author of Trelawney - the Cornish National Anthem) wrote a poem about the Launcells ringers - does anybody have the words to that? If anything 'rings a bell' I would be grateful to hear, plus any other campanologists delights!
