Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bellringing
The song Tony Rose recorded is indeed the one Barry mentioned above; it was posted in the thread WYSIWYG gave the URL for and is also in the DT, here: The Bell Ringing. Some time ago I made a midi of the tune as collected by Sabine Baring Gould from William George Kerswell of Two Bridges, Dartmoor (it's a Devon song) which is at the Mudcat Midi Pages: The Bell-Ringing.
The other song that Lucy already knows was posted in a discussion some time back: The Ringers of Egloshayle, whereupon someone enthusiastically posted "The Bellringing" again!
What I haven't managed to find is either of the two things Lucy is actually looking for, though I did discover that bellringing at Torrington continues to this day.
